Strategic Statistics to "Get the Job Done!”

This popular webinar offers a succinct overview of the vital information that real estate and planning professionals need “to get the job done”. Start the year off right with the economic, demographic, housing and industrial/commercial market information that will help you formulate a strategic planning perspective for 2023.

Join Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s Market Insights Division Economists, Pooni Group’s Chief Operating Officer Blaire Chisholm and rennie’s Senior Economist and Director of Intelligence Ryan Berlin for the information that you need to know to make sense of the challenging economic climate of 2023. How is the province’s demographic makeup expected to change over the short and long term and what are the implications on household formation and housing demand, both in British Columbia and Yukon? What are the key economic indicators that directly and indirectly influence our planning decisions? What can we expect this year in the residential, commercial, and industrial markets?
