West at a Glance

Western Economic Diversification Canada prepares the West at a Glance report that brings together key information related to the western Canadian economy, including significant developments at the provincial government level, relevant news items and reports, key economic indicators, upcoming events, and a spotlight on a key issue or trend in Western Canada.

The report helps to enable a better understanding of Western Canada strengths, opportunities and challenges. It is an important tool for the department as it supports WD’s role as an Intelligence Gatherer and Strategic Advisor, and Pathfinder and Convener.
