Resource Rich Provinces Lead Canadian Economic Growth: RBC Economics

TORONTO, Ontario, December 12, 2011 — Canada's provincial economies remain largely on course, according to the latest RBC Economics Provincial Outlook report released today.

"The biggest differentiating factor for provincial growth next year will continue to be the dynamism of the natural resource sector," said Craig Wright, senior vice-president and chief economist, RBC. "Resources will continue to be a catalyst for increased capital investment and production in resource-heavy provinces like Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Newfoundland and Labrador."
