Growth is projected to recover to around 2% (annualised rate) in the second half of 2019. Exports will strengthen in response to an easing in Alberta’s mandatory oil production cuts and higher export market growth. Business investment will rise as firms move to increase capacity and productivity and in response to new tax incentives. Employment growth is on course to slow, but the unemployment rate should remain near record lows.
