Since the global recession in 2008-09, Canada’s stock on the world stage has risen in many ways, but suffered in others. Our financial sector, which weathered the credit crisis so commendably, has won increasing respect. Lackluster commodity prices, however, have held back investments by owners of resource properties. In crucial energy production and distribution, including the Oil Sands, shale gas deposits, LNG export terminals and major pipeline expansions, difficult dealings with aboriginal leaders and environmental advocates are clouding the outlook.
Geographically, the Atlantic Region is hoping for overseas sales opportunities in oil and gas. Quebec has a new government both more in tune with the rest of Canada and inclined to put economic issues ahead of social distractions. Ontario, accounting for nearly 40% of the nation’s output, must eventually come to terms with its burgeoning deficit and debt burdens. And the resource-rich West will continue to benefit from rapid increases in population from interprovincial migration and foreign immigration, as workers gravitate to widely-publicized pockets of economic strength.
Interest rates remain remarkably low, Canadian housing starts are holding up better than expected, corporations have storehouses of wealth to spend on acquisitions and/or new facilities and our major trading partner, the U.S., is poised to lead global economic growth. Against such a background, what are the prospects for Canadian construction activity? Be among the attendees at CanaData’s 29th Annual Construction Industry Forecast Conference to learn the definitive answers.
