Today, Statistics Canada launches a new presentation series featuring statistical findings on Canada's economy, environment and society. These presentations will provide data users with an opportunity to look into the latest outcomes of Statistics Canada's analysis on different socioeconomic topics.

The first presentation, "An overview of recent macroeconomic developments in Canada," focuses on changes in the Canadian economy following the recession in 2008 and 2009, and developments during the first two quarters of 2014. The content is organized around three general themes: output and employment; financial conditions in the household sector; and international trade. Graphical information is based on seasonally adjusted data retrieved from Statistics Canada's CANSIM database on September 30, 2014.

This presentation complements the September release of "Recent Developments in the Canadian Economy: Fall 2014," which provides an integrated summary of recent changes in output, employment, household demand, international trade and prices.

The presentation "An overview of recent macroeconomic developments in Canada," as part of A presentation series from Statistics Canada about the economy, environment and society (Catalogue number11-631-X), is now available from the Browse by key resource module of our website under Publications.
