February 10, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

$14.99 – $18.99
In December 2020, TD Bank Group’s team of economists delivered a Provincial Economic Forecast amidst a fairly dark period in Manitoba’s pandemic experience. Thankfully, an earlier-than-expected vaccine rollout prompted them to upwardly revise the real GDP outlook for all provinces in 2021, and their Q4 business outlook survey revealed overall sentiment and hiring confidence levels had improved. The overall prognosis for Manitoba in 2021: positive. According to the report: “Looking ahead to next year, we anticipate a solid rebound in Manitoba’s economy. Aside from the assumed availability of a vaccine, there are other reasons to be optimistic.”

Join us live by webinar on February 10 as we host Derek Burleton, Vice President and Deputy Chief Economist for TD Bank Group.
