Canadian Politics & Policy: Economic Outlook in a Pandemic

August 5, 2020
1 Hour

Following a growth year of 1.6 percent, the Canadian economy has contracted due to measures to contain the virus. The economic outlook is exasperated by oil declines and trade uncertainty. While COVID-19 growth appears to be slowing in Canada, new figures from the World Health Organization show that the number of cases worldwide is growing rapidly.

Join us for a Politics & Policy webinar that will dive into the outlook on trade disruptions, fallen equity prices, emerging pandemic policy with essential insights on Canadian commodities markets and key economic developments, against the backdrop of the global pandemic.

  • A brief timeline of Canadian trends prior to pandemic
  • Review decline in commodities markets and next steps for Canadian financial markets
  • Long-term effects of Employment Insurance, tax deferrals and stimulus on economic stability through 2021
