The COVID-19 crisis pummeled Ontario’s economy and forced more than 1 million people out of a job over the past two months. While the province has avoided the worst scenarios, the government isn’t taking any chances. It’s chosen a methodical and cautious approach to re-opening, meaning its recovery will be gradual as well. What implications will that have for its diverse economy? How might it handle potential global supply chain disruptions? RBC Senior Economist Robert Hogue joins us with the outlook for Ontario.


The 10-Minute Take podcast provides insights from RBC economists and market experts on events unfolding around the globe.
