Economic Outlook

The recently elected Liberal government had campaigned on promises of running a modest fiscal deficit in an attempt to stimulate economic growth. However, their inherited fiscal position was not as cushioned as expected, and the proposed modest deficit is now looking substantially more sizable. The government has projected a minimum of a CAD 18.4 billion deficit over the course of 2016-2017.

This is significantly higher than the CAD 10.0 billion deficit announced during October’s election. Projected deficits for subsequent years have also risen by similar orders of magnitude.

There are several reasons for this adjustment, though oil prices are of particular salience, and the assumed benchmark crude price of USD 54 per barrel in the government’s original budgetary plans is no longer justifiable.
