Report looks at economic growth
Conference Board of Canada out with a report looking at economy growth through 2013 and beyond.
Toronto expected to have the fastest growing economy outside of Western Canada, with the GDP forecast to grow by 2.8 percent this year and an average of 2.7 percent from 2014 to 2017.
St. Catharines-Niagara expected to expand at a more modest pace of 2.3 per cent this year, 1.4 percent moving forward.
Director of the Centre for Municipal Studies Mario Lefebvre says Ontario cities are counting on U.S. growth to bolster their economies.
Lefebvre points to U.S. demand for motor vehicles, leading to production increases at automobile and parts factories across the province.
