Economic recovery makes Trudeau’s stimulus plan difficult

This week, the OECD upgraded the forecast for Canada’s economic growth. The group now expects the Canadian economy to grow by 6.1 per cent in 2021, up from a previous forecast of 4.7 per cent.

On this episode of Crisis Management, Alicja Siekierska and the Public Policy Forum’s Sean Speer look at the latest economic data and what the new forecasts signal about the pandemic recovery. Speer also argues that Canada’s economic recovery could present challenges for the Trudeau government, which has planned to add more than $100 billion in new spending over the next three years.
