The global and Canadian economies have been substantially impacted by COVID-19. We are now in the midst of the pandemic’s second wave, with stricter lockdown measures quickly being instituted. In December, after months of solid employment gains in Canada and the United States, economic conditions worsened considerably. To date, the rollout of the vaccine has been slow and riddled with challenges; as a result, economic recovery in Canada is likely to take longer.

This session will focus on assessing COVID-19’s impact on municipal revenues and analyzing various recovery scenarios outlined in The Real Economy, Canada (RSM’s quarterly economic publication), as Canada’s economic recovery will depend largely on economic conditions in the United States. We will also discuss the impact of the new administration on Canada’s economy and municipalities.

The 60 minute presentation will be immediately followed by a 30 minute Q&A session.
