As Canadians look optimistically to the year ahead, hopeful that the Omicron-driven wave of the pandemic has peaked in most provinces, concerns about businesses being able to fully re-open, supply chain challenges and worker shortages in various sectors continue as do concerns about rising prices for certain commodities and consumer goods. Please join us on February 15, 2022, for a first quarter economic update featuring Osler Special Advisor and former Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz.
While the country saw significant job growth in late 2021, job vacancies continued to rise in a tightening labour market – one further impacted by the shutdown of certain close-contact industries such as hospitality. As well, many industries saw a loss of staff due to time off for illness due to increased COVID-19 infections in January.
Meanwhile, deal activity in many sectors continues unfettered and the Canadian dollar is expected to gain strength in the coming year as the global economic recovery continues.
Join us virtually for an update on Stephen’s view on the economy and insights into what to expect for 2022.
Osler National Co-Chair Maureen Killoran will facilitate the Q&A session with Stephen.
