Canadians have become bullish on the country’s economic prospects for the first time since 2007, according to a poll by Nanos Research, adding to evidence a recovery is under way.
The share of Canadians who say they believe the economy will strengthen over the next six months rose to 45 percent, according to an advance copy of Nanos’s quarterly economic survey provided exclusively to Bloomberg News. That’s more than twice the 18 percent who predict the economy will weaken.
The poll also found that Canadians are three times more likely to say the value of their real estate will increase over the next six months than say it will decrease.
