British Columbia in the Global Context 2017

View Full Article +/-

ACSESS British Columbia – Chief Economist Todd Hirsch Presents:

Nearing the end of 2016, the global economy remains tentative. The US continues to pick up steam, but troubles are brewing both in Europe and Asia. Canada's economy is also struggling to gain traction and oil prices continue to bounce around at levels unsupportive of new investment in Alberta. In the meantime, British Columbia continues to enjoy the strongest economy in the country. Will that continue in 2017? Or will wobbles in the housing market bring down BC's growth record? What can we expect?

Date: Monday November 28th, 2016
Location: Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel – 1128 West Hastings Street
Time:
  • 7:45am – 8:00am – brief introduction from event sponsor TRITON's Todd Anstey
