Outlook 2007: Opportunities for Growth Amidst Diverging Economic Trends

November 14, 2006

Vol. 41, No. 3, Fall 2006
In the United States, a significant correction in its housing market is contributing to much slower growth. For Atlantic Canada, the most immediate hit from slower activity south of the border will be firms supplying wood products and other construction materials. But a broader consumer-led slowdown will affect a larger array of manufacturing industries along with tourism and other business services. An additional pressure for Atlantic employers is the pull from rapid growth in Alberta’s economy: Atlantic Canada lost an estimated 13,000 people to Alberta over the last 12 months. Newfoundland and Labrador will be the regional growth leader in 2007 after setbacks this year in its oil and mining sector.

This issue of Atlantic Report provides estimated growth rates for the four Atlantic provinces , as well as an overview of the influencing factors in the global, U.S and Canadian economies.
