CanaData East - Sept 21, 2017

Liberty Grand, Toronto, Ont.

Don't miss out

on Canada's



forecast conference

Keynote Speaker - Carl Bernstein

Be informed

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.

Be among the attendees at CanaData’s 32nd Annual Construction Industry Forecast Conference and receive informed commentary, expert analysis and forecasts to help guide your business.

Why attend?

Uniting business leadership with high-profile, engaging speakers, this is the premiere construction forecast event in Canada.  CanaData is Canada’s leading barometer of future economic activity within the construction sector – and this event provides rich insights and analysis of construction industry trends.

Past speakers have included leaders in the construction and business community. 
From economists, to CEOs and heads of government agencies, CanaData has combined a rich pool of expertise into a day of thought leadership that is a mandatory event for leadership within Canada’s diverse construction industry.


The CanaData conference has really helped us stay connected to the emerging market conditions and better see where development is headed.  Overall, the programs have been excellent, with a nice balance of financial, economic, residential and ICI construction activity information.

– John Humphries Director (Special Projects) Business Operations Toronto Building, City of Toronto
