The Central Region Committee invites you to attend our upcoming breakfast seminar.

This seminar will provide an economic update with both global and Canadian perspectives.  

How do you truly know which direction your business is going if you don't know where the Canadian economy is going?  Where is the global economy going?  

Relocations largely follow business cycles, so understanding these cycles is crucial to your internal planning.  What do you need to know about USMCA? What are the risks to the Canadian economy?  Will this have impact on mobility?  

For domestic relocations, you need to understand what is happening with the housing market.  And of course, what are the projections for the all-important American market.

Join us on November 7th for an important and entertaining discussion of all of these topics, so you can be prepared for the coming phase of the economic cycle.
