The COVID-19 pandemic and the associated containment measures have had a devastating impact on Canada’s economy. Along with the rest of the world, we are experiencing the biggest economic crisis since the Great Depression. Unfortunately, the manufacturing industry is not escaping unscathed. How deep will the contraction be and what shape will the recovery take? What other factors will affect the manufacturing industry’s growth prospects? These questions and more will be addressed during a webinar the CHHMA will be hosting by Alan Arcand of the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME). 

Mr. Arcand’s economic outlook presentation will take place via Zoom from 9:00 a.m. until 9:40 a.m. (EST) on June 16th, followed by a Q&A period.
