For 2016, growth was trimmed as well to 2.3 per cent from 2.5 per cent (but due to weaker handoff) and for 2017 the forecast was improved to 2.6 per cent from 2 per cent, which suggests that the longer run outlook has improved but off a lower base.For the second quarter, the Bank of Canada is now projecting a 0.5 per cent annualized decline (after 0.6 per cent in the first quarter) compared to the previous forecast for a 1.8 per cent gain, so big haircut to second quarter.
