Forecast for B.C.’s economy: An outlook from our Duelling Economists
BEATA CARANCI V. JOCK FINLAYSON
Where is B.C.’s economy headed in 2017? It’s the million-dollar question, as experts debate whether the province’s growth in recent years can be sustained, whether B.C. and Canada are competitive globally, and what’s likely to happen with interest and foreign exchange rates. This lack of consensus has inspired a new format for our popular economic panel at this year’s BC Middle Market Growth Conference: The Duelling Economists. We’ve secured two of the industry’s leading experts on the economy, Beata Caranci, Vice President and Chief Economist, TD Bank and Jock Finlayson, Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer at BC Business Council. Join us as we find out where they differ and where their outlooks align. They’ll tackle variables affecting growth in our province from corporate tax rates to carbon pricing. We’ll look at the provincial perspective as well as the big picture for Canada. We’ll also find out the answer to some of the most pressing questions business owners, CEOs and CFOs are asking right now:
Moderating this duel of perspectives is Kellie Manchester, Partner, Sequeira Partners. Kellie co-founded Sequeira Partners in B.C. and is a recognized leader in mid-market corporate finance transactions in western Canada. She has more than 16 years of experience advising clients in B.C. and Alberta on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, financings and buyouts in both the private and public sector.
