Webinar: Recovery and Resilience: An Overview of Recent Economic and Social Developments

Life in Canada, as in other countries, has changed in many ways since the start of the pandemic—some changes were direct impacts of the pandemic, while others were trends that were accelerated by it. This upcoming webinar from the Strategic Analysis team highlights several of the major economic and social trends that continue to impact the lives of Canadians. It includes an overview of the slowdown in economic activity during the second half of 2022 as businesses and households were adjusting to higher borrowing costs. It also examines recent labour market developments, financial pressures related to inflation and affordability, and social trends related to excess mortality and well-being.

Intended Target Audience:
This is an introductory webinar; it may be too basic for advanced data users.

Conducted every five years, the Census of Population is the most comprehensive source of data on the demographic, social and economic characteristics of Canadians.

The Census workshop is designed for those new to working with Census data or those who want to further develop their abilities in regards to working with Census concepts, methodology, geography and analysis.
