The key theme for Canada's economy over the coming years will remain 'rebalancing', as private consumption and high oil prices can no longer be relied upon to provide robust economic growth. High household debt levels will require a period of prolonged deleveraging. Tighter regulation and macro-prudential measures introduced in 2012 to engineer a soft landing of the housing market are likely to restrict households from taking on more debt and weigh on spending growth over the coming years. We forecast average real private consumption growth of 2.2% between 2014 and 2018.
