COVID-19 is an unprecedented challenge for the global health system and our economy. The pandemic has triggered a cascade of temporary business closures and job loss across Canada and within B.C. We are likely through the worst of the economic downturn and can set our sights on the recovery which is unlikely to be swift, nor a return to normal operations. This webinar will discuss the economic impacts of COVID-19 on the regional economy, and Central 1’s expectations for the recovery of the economy and impacts on housing markets, presented by Central 1’s Deputy Chief Economist, Bryan Yu.
Tuesday, June 9, 2020; 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Free & exclusive to members of the Richmond Chamber with advance registration.
