Welcome to The Growth Project, an RBC initiative. Discover a new generation of ideas for the Canadian economy. When adjusted for inflation and immigration, our economy is now smaller than it was before the pandemic and essentially unchanged from a decade ago. Stalled economic growth foresees challenges Canadians might face in maintaining and improving their living standards in the decades to come.

Throughout this project, we will explore key drivers of economic growth including productivity, evolving technologies like AI, key sectors including agriculture and trade, and the intersection of skills and immigration. We will explore a new generation of ideas to drive prosperity: case studies and actionable steps needed to navigate the dynamic landscape of economic expansion, and uncover tools that foster growth in our community, business, and country.
