Economic outlook - Quarterly update on Canadian and International economic trends and events

Published on: Jan 31, 2021

As 2020 draws to a close, we can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel. Campaigns for COVID-19 vaccination are beginning across Canada and other parts of the globe, signalling a beginning of the end of this tragic pandemic. However, it will take many more months before the vaccines reach enough of the population that our society and economy can begin to truly recover. Until we get there, the country remains in the grips of a deadly second wave of infection. Dealing with the public health crisis has necessitated renewed regional shutdowns and slowed economic growth dramatically from the rebound we witnessed in the third quarter. This is a trend that is, unfortunately, expected to continue in early 2021.
