Scotiabank deputy economist Aron Gampel spoke at the CanaData East Construction Industry Forecast Conference in Toronto recently, and gave his view of the current and near-future state of the global economy.

Gampel said despite current gloom, there is reason for positivity in Canada even with minimal growth over 2016 and into 2017.

Despite low commodity prices, Canada continues to grow, Gampel said, and pointed to both Vancouver and the GTA as areas of economic optimism.

Gampel also pointed to federal infrastructure spending, which has not as yet ramped up, as another potential area of growth for Canada.
