Currently RBC Economics is forecasting real GDP growth at 1.0% for 2014. This increase will largely be the result of the strengthening mining sector with new start-up operations in Bathurst as well as stronger production with the expansion of the Sussex Potash mine in 2014-2015. New Brunswick’s job market is expected to show an improvement in employment this quarter as the result of a recovery in the province’s labour market. This will represent a welcome turnaround for the province.
