Beyond 2021 – post-Covid 19 – Canada’s economy will resume expanding. But the expansion will be uneven from one province to another and within each province. Metropolitan areas will most often be the “beneficiaries”. This shifting economic landscape reflects changes underway in our trade patterns, the goods and services we consume, the way we shop, the distribution channels we use, and the sources we use to recruit workers to replace the retiring Baby Boom generation. This session looks at how metroeconomics expects these and other shifts to shake out geographically in the decades ahead.
