Oil Prices and the Canadian Economy – Events and impacts
Energy's run as the largest contributor to Canadian export earnings ended in 2015, as the world grappled with an over-supply of oil. This presentation will look at Statistics Canada data to help provide insight into related price movements, the gasoline value chain and the subsequent economic fallout. Selected impacts on the government sector, business activities, and consumer behavior, over a five year period (from 2011 to 2016) will also be reviewed. Special focus will be made on Alberta, where the energy sector is an important economic driver.
The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with experts and audience questions.
