  2. Nobody is foreseeing upcoming huge financial crisis where dedollarization will destroy lots of accounts. If you have capacity to move your investments to include international exposure and solid assets you will have better luck!!!

  3. As a small retail store owner in Calgary I can tell you all the expenses are getting insane. Rent, utility rates doubled in Alberta, insurance, property tax, margins are going down even with increasing prices. My sales were up 15% YOY but I made much less at the end of the day.

    1. and the middle class folks are not getting the raise that they deserve, which leads to a diminished purchase power. This won’t help you until the middle class wage actually catches up. The recent rapid minimum wage increase is only deepens the ever-decreasing purchase power for most Canadians, nevermind the inflation butterfly effects flowing from US to Canada….

    1. Exactly! Real estate investing should be illegal or at least heavily restricted. They are taking houses away from families!

  4. “Are insolvency filings increasing, decreasing or staying the same?

    Insolvency filing numbers plummeted following the lockdowns as the government threw money around like drunken sailors – giving CERB money to folks the government knew, or ought to have known, did not qualify in addition to pushing down interest rates to create a housing bubble. As a result, massive volumes of unsecured debt was consolidated into mortgages and CERB funded payouts for many other impecunious folks.

    Before the correction in real estate pricing, precipitated by a correction (return to near average) in interest rates, the mortgage industry was far busier than normal, and people were flocking to get licensed as agents. We would, otherwise, anticipate insolvency filing numbers (based on population and credit usage trends) for 2023 we would have otherwise anticipated about 150,000 filings instead of the 123,233 that were actually filed. “

  5. paid back all my cerb so I could save 10k… now my sales are in the toilet.. Never seen business this bad. Im in the furniture industry.

  6. Also I dont know who thought there would be cuts in March, thats next month !! I was thinking May or June for a cut.
