Supply chain disruptions are dampening Canada’s economic recovery, slowing growth, pushing prices higher and weakening the labour market. Even when pandemic-induced disruptions end, businesses will continue to restructure their supply chains, making them shorter, more regionalized and embedding greater redundancies. Sohaib Shahid will discuss the challenges facing global supply chains, how long they may be expected to last, and implications for economic growth, inflation, and monetary policy.
