The Conference Board of Canada announced Thursday.
Minister of Energy and Resources Dustin Duncan said there is a good reason for the predicted growth.
“Good news compared to the last couple of years, the economy is starting to recover, and we’ve even seen that in recent numbers in our retail sales and manufacturing sales which have lead the country, even today we have 7,000 jobs on the SaskJobs website,” Duncan said on Thursday.
Duncan said with oil predicted to be the main driver of the provinces economy they are seeing good signs there as well.
