ECONOMIC SNAPSHOT: WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS ON ATLANTIC CANADA?
An insightful presentation examining the key economic engines that are and will be driving growth across the Atlantic region. To what extent are new mega projects in energy, hydro-electricity and ship building combining with traditional industrial sectors to propel this regional economy forward? What is the outlook for Canadian interest rates, inflation, employment, and immigration? How will these economic fundamentals impact Atlantic Canada? Are there U.S., European and other global trends that need to be considered as well?
