Canada Vehicles Market 2015 breaks the 1.9 million sales hitting the new all-time record albeit in December sales had been down after 30 consecutive increase. Market is growing albeit economy suffered a turbulent 2015.

Economic Outlook

Canada’s economy suffered a turbulent 2015. Amidst the backdrop of lower demand for Canadian commodities, as well as for manufactured goods, Canada slipped into recession in the first half of 2015. The Bank of Canada implemented two rate cuts this year in an attempt to spur economic activity and decrease the value of the CAD.

Further stimulus can be expected through increased government spending after the Trudeau government was elected in October. Monthly GDP figures suggest Canada’s economy slowed significantly in September, as the oil and gas industry suffered further rounds of divestment. The prolonged slump in oil prices continues to impact investment in Canada’s energy sector, which is dragging on the country’s growth.
