CANCEA Municipal COVID-19 Datasets

Municipal COVID-19 Datasets

Free of charge, the Canadian Centre for Economic Analysis is supporting municipalities across Canada with its analysis during the COVID-19 crisis. This analysis examines the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19 and the public health response to it. It covers a variety of topics, is detailed and will be updated as significant information becomes available or as functionally and scope of analysis is updated.

The municipal analysis that will be provided will be CANCEA's moderate recovery scenario. This scenario includes 1 wave of COVID-19 – the economy opens in late June 2020 and is frustrated by COVID-19 outbreaks throughout the year. This can lead to several businesses to permanently close their doors during the downturn, resulting in some permanent costs through the bankruptcy process.

General GDP Results: Moderate Recovery Scenario

The municipal analysis that will be provided will be CANCEA’s Ontario moderate scenario. This scenario includes 1 wave of COVID-19 – the economy opens in late June 2020 and is frustrated by COVID-19 outbreaks throughout the year. This can lead to several businesses to permanently close their doors during the downturn, resulting in some permanent costs through the bankruptcy process Bank of Canada results:
  • Best case scenario: containment measures are relaxed soon and policy measures successfully limit any potential structural damage to the economy in both Canada and our major trading partners.
  • Worst case scenario: the impact on households and businesses could be more severe and much more persistent. For example, if control measures are required for a longer period, the impact of the pandemic would be greater. This could, in turn, lead a significant number of businesses to permanently close their doors during the downturn, resulting in some permanent costs through the bankruptcy process.

Size of the Economy

The result of the previous graph can be viewed as the change in the size of the economy relative to 2019. The results are for the years 2020 and 2021 relative to what GDP was in 2019. These results provide useful heuristics for the changes in employment, incomes and investment. For example, the unemployment rate in 2019 for Ontario was 5.9%. In CANCEA’s moderate scenario, the result of a contraction in the size of the economy of -10.2% would roughly imply an unemployment rate of -16.1% (-10.2% minus 5.9%) assuming that all those people who had lost their jobs in 2020 and those who were looking for jobs in 2019 would be looking for jobs by the end of the year 2020.
