DALLAS, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Canada Infrastructure Report Q2 2013

Canada's construction sector will continue to post strong growth, with 4.1% year-on-year real growth in construction industry value anticipated in 2013. The housing market is anticipated to experience a slowdown; however, we see infrastructure and non-residential building picking up the slack. Industrial projects in the mining and hydrocarbons sectors, combined with those in social infrastructure, will support non-residential building, whilst new projects to support resource extraction and transportation will buoy infrastructure.

As anticipated, growth in 2012 came in slower than the previous year, at an estimated 3.9%, versus the 4.1% seen in 2011. However, the slowdown was not as pronounced as anticipated, owing to the resilience of the residential construction sector, despite a number of measures to slow mortgage loan growth. These measures now appear to be taking effect, although we anticipate it will result in a slowdown in new residential construction rather than an abrupt halt. Despite this market slowing, we see the overall construction sector picking up in 2013, as the infrastructure sector is revived as a result of natural resource related demands on the existing power and transport networks.

Canada Agribusiness Report Q2 2013

Canada's position in the global grain market is being reinforced in 2012/13 thanks to betterthan-expected wheat and corn production and in a context of tight supply from other major producers. The country could temporarily gain export markets from the US, as the wheat Canada produces is the closest to the US hard winter wheat. The country''s livestock industry could suffer from the implementation of country of origin legislation (MCOOL) in the US but margins for the dairy and livestock sectors should improve overall in 2013 thanks to moderating grain prices. As a result, we highlight growth potential in the near term for poultry and bakery processor Maple Leaf Foods.

  • Wheat production growth to 2016/17: 9.2% to 27.6mn tonnes. Liberalisation of the Canadian Wheat Board will in crease competition between exporters and encourage farmers to boost production.
  •  Beef consumption growth to 2017: 0.6% to 1.0mn tonnes. We see potential for consumers to shift to cheaper and healthier types of meat such as pork and poultry.
