Calgary and Edmonton are forecast to be the fastest growing economies in Canada over the next four years, according to the Conference Board of Canada’s Metropolitan Outlook-Autumn 2012 released Tuesday.
“Energy-related investment in Alberta is expected to stay vibrant throughout the next four years. For instance, about $29-billion worth of energy-related projects are now underway in the province, and nearly $86-billion worth of projects are proposed for the future,” said Mario Lefebvre, Director, Centre for Municipal Studies, for the board.
“All this investment will continue to be a boon to Calgary’s economy, which remains the services hub of the province’s energy sector.”
The board is forecasting Calgary to have the best economic growth in the country over 2013-2016 at an average of 3.7 per cent followed by Edmonton’s average annual real GDP growth at 3.5 per cent during the forecast period.
For this year, the board is predicting Edmonton will lead the country with 4.6 per cent growth followed by Calgary at 3.8 per cent.
“Without a doubt, I expect that Alberta is going to be the envy of the country moving forward into closing out 2012 and into 2013,” said Ben Brunnen, chief economist with the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. “While the growth will be the strongest in the country, particularly for our cities, that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’re in great economic times.

Calgary home prices rose slightly in August, according to the latest Teranet-National Bank National Composite House Price Index, which tracks repeat home sales in the country.
Prices in Calgary were up 0.4 per cent from the previous month and 0.8 per cent year-over-year, said the report released on Wednesday. Nationally, prices rose 0.2 per cent on a monthly basis and by 4.1 per cent on an annual basis.
The index is estimated by tracking observed or registered home prices over time using data collected from public land registries. All dwellings that have been sold at least twice are considered in the calculation of the index.
This year’s August increase of just 0.2 per cent nationally was the smallest August increase in 12 years and in three of the 11 metropolitan markets surveyed, prices were down from the month before: Vancouver (1.2 per cent), Victoria (0.7 per cent) and Quebec City (0.6 per cent).
