The Business Outlook Survey indicator in Canada rose to 4.73 in the third quarter of 2021 from a downwardly revised 3.96 in the previous period. It was the highest reading on records, signalling both low base year effects, as comparisons are drawn from business conditions of a year earlier, and broadening positive sentiment. Firms anticipate growth in both domestic and foreign demand, as business continues to benefit from easing of pandemic related restrictions. Consequently, higher demand led to struggles with capacity pressure, as businesses had to limit potentially higher sales due to understaffing problems and difficulties obtaining raw materials. Therefore, firms plan to increase capital and machinery, while employment intentions remain at record high levels. source: Bank of Canada
