In Canada in 2016, we anticipate that the Port of Montreal will continue to lead in terms of growth at 4.90%, albeit a bit lower than 2015's estimate. The port of Prince Rupert will shorten its lead in terms of container throughput growth, with Metro Vancouver closing the gap. We forecast that there will be no negative growth figures in 2016 despite the knock-on effects of the slowdown in China and the possible repercussions on global economic instability.

Canada's economy looks set to benefit from trade with the US and increased deficit reduction in 2016, as investment in the country's shipping sector continues to strengthen its offering by enabling more capacity and efficiency. Growth in trade will reach a high in 2017 before settling at healthy levels over the following few years with import figures slightly overshadowing exports over this period. Fuel exports will lead the way in terms of key trade indicators whilst the growth over the medium term of the export of heavy metals and agricultural materials will drive growth in the shipping sector, with much of the traffic heading to the US.
