2017 Waterloo Region Business Outlook

Thursday September 7 2017 Crowne Plaza Kitchener-Waterloo Kitchener, Ontario


Economic growth in Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo has outpaced that of the province as a whole for 10 of the last 11 years, and the outlook for 2017 is bright. High-tech and auto-related manufacturing, along with a strong knowledge-based services sector are among the headline industries that drive the region’s economy. However, global economic uncertainty will challenge business leaders and policy-makers. 

Get the latest and most comprehensive economic analysis in the country from The Conference Board of Canada to navigate this uncertain business climate. The first Waterloo Region Business Outlook event includes global, national, provincial, and metropolitan perspectives, including in-depth economic analysis and the opportunities for dialogue and discussion that will help regional leaders make critical decisions.

  • Key regional industries, such as high-tech, manufacturing, and finance and insurance.
  • The impact of the weaker Canadian dollar and the U.S. economy on trade.
  • Other key indicators, such as population, employment, and residential investment.

Senior economists from one of Canada’s most respected forecasting organizations drill deep into the factors driving the outlook for the province and metropolitan region, all set within a national and international context. In addition to the Conference Board’s economic forecast for 2017 and beyond, attendees at the 2017 Waterloo Region Business Outlook will enjoy a lively panel discussion and keynote address.

The Conference Board’s expertise helps participants to anticipate and capitalize on the major forces affecting their organizations with up-to-date information to improve strategies and business plans. Throughout the events, attendees also have the opportunity to engage with our experts and make connections that can lead to additional economic insights and business relationships.
