Bank of Canada Economic Progress Report

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 1:30PM-2:15PM ET

Deputy Governor Schembri will discuss economic developments and how the COVID pandemic has affected household spending and created accumulated savings.

The webinar will provides insights into:

  • In January, the Bank forecast negative growth in the first quarter, but a strong rebound later in the year. How has their view changed since then?
  • Households have socked money away during the pandemic. What happens when they start spending again?
  • Lockdowns have affected both incomes and savings. Who has felt it most and what does that mean for future economic growth?
