1 PROVINCIAL OUTLOOK UPDATE February 6, 2015 Real GDP growth 2015 Annual % change CANADA B.C Several developments have occurred since the publication of our most recent Provincial Outlook report in December 2014, which prompted us to revise our provincial forecasts for 2015 and These developments include: further weakness in oil prices and downgrade to our oil price assumptions for 2015 and 2016 we now assume WTI to average US$53 per barrel in 2015 (down from US$70 in December) and US$77 in 2016 (versus US$80 previously); ALTA SASK. 2.8 MAN ONT QUE. 2.0 N.B N.S. Dec-14 P.E.I Feb-15 N.& L Source : RBC Economics Research announcements by the oil industry of additional/upsized capital expenditure reductions and project delays/postponements; the surprise interest rate cut by the Bank of Canada and resulting downward revision to our interest rate forecasts this year and next; and substantial depreciation in the Canadian dollar (versus the US dollar) and resulting downward revision to our Canadian dollar forecast now projected to end 2015 at US$0.75/C$ (compared to US$0.85 in December) and 2016 at US$0.78 (versus US$0.82 assumed previously). The effects of this combination of factors are: a dimmed outlook for oil-producing provinces, particularly Alberta but also Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan; and slightly brighter outlook for all other provinces relative to our December forecasts. Consequently, we now expect Alberta s economy to show substantial deceleration from an estimated real GDP growth of 4.1% in 2014 to a rate of just 0.6% in 2015 (down from 2.7% in our December outlook). The risk of a recession in Alberta cannot be dismissed; however, we believe that it will be averted under our assumption of rising oil prices starting by the middle of this year, which would help rebuild confidence in the province and prevent activity from entering a full-blown contractionary spiral. Similarly, we have lowered our projections for real GDP growth in Newfoundland and Labrador to 0.6% (from 1.1% previously) and to % in Saskatchewan (from 2.8%). We also marked down our 2016 forecasts for Alberta (to 0.9% from 2.3% previously) and Saskatchewan (to 2.1% from 2.8%). The main basis for these downward revisions is the significantly greater scope and magnitude of capital expenditure cutbacks than we anticipated in December. On the other hand, we see the weaker expected value in the Canadian dollar in the face of solid US growth and lower expected interest rates adding more upside to real GDP growth across net oil-consuming provinces in both 2015 and Our updated forecasted growth rates for these provinces are generally 0.1 to 0.2 percentage points higher than they were in December, with Ontario leading all provinces in 2015 with a rate of 3.3%. Robert Hogue Senior Economist As we argued in December, it is our view that the oil price shock will result principally in a re-allocation of growth across the country albeit with a modest net negative impact of 0.2 percentage points for 2015 growth. The dominant factor driving growth in oil consuming provinces will be strengthening demand from the United States although improvement in the outlook for consumer spending and non-energy capital

2 PROVINCIAL OUTLOOK UPDATE FEBRUARY 2015 Export destinations by province As % of provincial GDP, average 40 Exports to Alberta Exports to US N&L PEI NS NB QC ON MB SK AB BC Source: Statistics Canada, RBC Economics Research investment arising from lower fuel prices and interest rates also will contribute to some extent. Generally speaking, provincial economies are much more exposed to the US than they are to Alberta. Provincial exports to the US measure up between 11% and 37% of nominal GDP (based on data between 2007 and 2011), whereas exports to Alberta range only between 1% and 8%. We believe, therefore, that solid US real GDP growth of 3.4% this year (as we project) and the lower dollar will produce gains in provincial exports that will easily surpass any loss in exports to Alberta. This is particularly true for Ontario and Quebec, where non-energy exports to the US are roughly seven times the size of their exports to Alberta (in terms of share of provincial GDP). Improved prospects for provincial exports to the US market will go along way toward containing the oil price shock to oil producing provinces (Alberta in particular), and thereby preventing a contagion effect from developing across Canada. Drop in oil prices to deliver a tough blow to Alberta s economy The most immediate effect of the slide in oil prices in Alberta is a significant drop in capital expenditure plans by oil companies. In January, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers forecasted that member companies would cut investments by 33% in Western Canada in 2015, including a 24% reduction in the oil sands. We expect that such actions would significantly drive down drilling activity and oil & gas engineering construction in Alberta. Lower drilling activity, in turn, is expected to lead to a decline in conventional oil production. We assume that non-conventional oil output will continue to increase, however, because of the ramping up of production at new and expanded projects. We estimate that the direct impact of lower capital spending in the energy sector will reduce Alberta s real GDP growth rate by more than 1.5 percentage points in Export destinations by province As % of provincial GDP, average 40 Exports to Alberta Non-energy exports to US Indirectly, the effect will spread to employment, net migration, the housing sector, consumer spending and, possibly, public sector spending. Our updated forecasts assume a decline in employment during the first half of 2015 in Alberta. Job losses could be as much as half the jobs created in Our forecasts also assume some partial reversal during the second half of this year amid rising oil prices and rebuilding confidence. Deteriorating job prospects in the near term likely will moderate net in-migration into the province, which has been very strong in recent years. We expect weaker in-migration to slow down population growth from 2.8% in 2014 to something closer to 1.5% within the next year or so (or slightly higher than the recession trough of 1.4% in 2010) N&L PEI NS NB QC ON MB SK AB BC Source: Statistics Canada, RBC Economics Research Softening demographic fundamentals likely will weigh on Alberta s housing sector. Already there are signs of impending housing market downturns in Calgary and Edmonton, although these so far primarily reflect a loss of confidence caused by the sharp drop in oil prices rather than weaker population growth. We project home resales to decline by nearly 16% in 2015 in Alberta and housing starts to moderate from 40.6K units last year to 27.5K units this year. That being said, we expect home prices to stay relatively flat (down just 0.5% overall in the province) in 2015 reflecting the fact that the market was initially in a position of strength to withstand much of the hit. More significant price declines may occur in 2016, however. but not a knock-out punch Nonetheless, not all is bleak in Alberta. A population growth rate of 1.5% would still be stronger than the Canadian average. After a likely flurry of layoffs in the first half of the year, we would expect that businesses will start hiring again later this year. Such factors would support further growth in consumer spending in the province, albeit at a much more subdued pace than seen in the past few years. Assuming that governments refrain from slashing expenditures, we believe that there will be sufficient offsets to the negative developments to keep Alberta s economy afloat this year and next. Downside risks will remain significant, however, at a time when any substantial loss of confidence could trigger a more damaging set of dynamics. 2
