Canada Economic Outlook

Real GDP advanced by an extremely sturdy 3.7% (qoq annualized) in 1Q17, following an already-robust average of 3.4% growth in the prior two quarters (previously reported as 3.2%). Although inventory accumulation was the biggest contributor to growth in the quarter, business investment also rebounded from the 4Q16 dip, and consumer spending accelerated to the fastest pace in nearly three years.
