Western Business Outlook: Saskatchewan
Delta Regina •
Heading into 2017, Saskatchewan continues to limp out of the recession brought on by the commodity price downturn in 2014-15. Unfortunately, the recovery remains slow. Oil and gas production will continue to slide in 2016-17, the potash industry has to contend with higher global production and stagnant demand, and the agricultural industry has suffered from flooding this year. The province is expected to lose jobs in 2016, but the good news is that employment growth is expected to accelerate from 2017 through 2020.
In this uncertain business climate, The Conference Board of Canada’s Western Business Outlook series makes its second visit to the province with a stop in Regina on April 3, 2017, as part of the Saskatchewan Economic Summit 2017. Our renowned economic forecasting team will provide attendees the opportunity to take a deep dive into the numbers that will drive the Saskatchewan economy for the years ahead.
Join our Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Craig Alexander for an in-depth look at global economic conditions as well as a review of North American economy, our national and provincial outlook, and the economic forecast for Saskatchewan’s two largest cities, Regina and Saskatoon. This session will give Saskatchewan’s business leaders and policy-makers a better understanding of the macro-economic trends that are shaping the business environment. Questions to be addressed will include:
- Where is the Canadian resource sector heading?
- When will the price curve turn upwards again for oil and natural gas?
- What will the impact of consolidation in the potash and agri-businesses sector?
- What will be the impact on the province’s export economy, based on tectonic shifts in the U.S. position vis-à-vis NAFTA or TPP?
Don't miss your chance to attend this unique opportunity to hear in-depth and detailed analysis from some of Canada’s leading economic analysts. Coupled with a lively panel discussion with some of Saskatchewan’s leading business people and a keynote address; the Western Business Outlook in Regina promises to be the premier economic forecasting event in the province this year.
