Desjardins Economic Studies on The Economic Impact of Canada's New Immigration Plans
Desjardins Economic Studies (DES) has revised its population growth forecasts significantly downward in response to the federal government's recent announcement of plans to reduce the number of non-permanent residents (NPRs) in Canada from about 2.5 million to around 2 million within three years. To achieve this target, an unprecedented net reduction of NPRs would be necessary, where more leave than enter the country.
While the working-age population growth is expected to see a modest decline this year, the impact will be more pronounced in 2025 and 2026, with annual growth projections dropping from 1.7% to 0.7%. Although slower population growth is anticipated to dampen overall economic activity, DES predicts an increase in real gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, bolstered by potentially higher productivity growth. Nonetheless, the aggregate real GDP growth is projected to be lower, with the increased productivity insufficient to counteract the effects of reduced population growth, leading to a more negative outlook for the forecasted output gap compared to earlier projections.
BoC Expects to Cut Rates This Year, Governing Council Split on Timing
The Bank of Canada, in its deliberations summary, indicates optimism about reducing interest rates within the year if economic and inflation trends align with projections. However, there's a lack of consensus among officials on the appropriate timing for such cuts, hinging on a continued and significant decline in 'underlying inflation' indicators.
The central bank, maintaining a cautious stance, kept its rate at 5% earlier in the month, with Governor Tiff Macklem emphasizing the risk of acting prematurely. Contrarily, the U.S. Federal Reserve has paused rate changes but signals future cuts, despite rising inflation. In Canada, lower-than-expected inflation rates bolster predictions of mid-year rate cuts by the Bank of Canada, though persistent inflation, particularly in housing costs, could necessitate a lengthier period of restrictive monetary policy. With shelter costs significantly up and contributing to February's inflation, the central bank's next rate decision on April 10 is highly anticipated amidst concerns over inflation's trajectory.
Oil Falls 1% as US Crude Inventories Surge
Crude oil prices declined further, slipping over 1% on Wednesday due to a significant increase in U.S. inventories and indications that the OPEC+ alliance is not expected to alter its production strategy during the upcoming technical gathering next week.
