What’s Next? – Economic Outlook for Ontario’s Manufacturers


It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a year since the pandemic has rippled through our economy and our reality. With the pace of recovery being interrupted by a third wave of COVID-19, this has not only proven to be challenging for business planning purposes, but the unpredictability of what’s in store for Ontario’s economy is a question that is top of mind to many manufacturers.

A new economic reality means a new set of risks and opportunities. To help you forecast your business operations and understand what recovery in a post pandemic world may look like for your business, join us for a fireside chat with two Chief Economists – Alan Arcand from CME (Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters) and Pierre Cléroux from BDC (Business Development Bank of Canada).

This session is a unique opportunity to:

  • Gather economic advice for dealing with the impacts of COVID-19 in Ontario;
  • Gain insights about the key trends likely to impact your manufacturing business in the present and beyond; and
  • Ask questions about the disruptive challenges facing your business and obtain possible solutions.
