While Canadians are starting to see signs of easing inflation pressures, concerns about whether the economy is inching closer to a recession this year are rising. Please join us on March 1, 2023, for a first-quarter economic update featuring Osler Special Advisor and former Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz.
Despite a surprise bump in job numbers in late 2022, layoffs continue to be announced in the tech sector causing uncertainty for many people about the months ahead. Coupled with rising debt payments cutting into household budgets, consumer spending is expected to soften.
Meanwhile, geopolitical uncertainty and concerns about further supply chain disruptions and higher interest rates pose risks to growth in the year ahead.
Please join us virtually for an update on Stephen’s view on the economy and insights into what to expect for 2023.
Osler National Co-Chair Shahir Guindi will facilitate the Q&A session with Stephen.
