Provincial Economic Service

The Provincial Economic Service provides detailed forecasts of more than 300 economic and demographic variables for a 10-year period for each of Canada and its ten provinces.  This service is used by governments, utilities, retailers, developers and other organizations that require an in-depth, long-term view of economic and demographic trends in Canada.

Each report includes an overview of the current economic outlook for each province.  This includes forecasts for GDP growth, inflation, employment and population plus a discussion of the national and international assumptions incorporated in the forecast.

Detailed charts and tables are provided in support of the outlook for each province.  Data coverage includes:

     output and employment for 37 industries,
     the labour market,
     population by age and sex,
