Todd Hirsch Speaking in Calgary and Edmonton

The Alberta Real Estate Foundation brings you Alberta’s top economist to talk about the future of the Real Estate Industry in Alberta amidst a fast changing globalized world. 

Canada’s economy has done reasonably well, yet things are not all that they seem. Like a frog in a pot of warm water, Canadians have not yet realized the changes an increasingly global economy can bring. How will this impact the real estate industry based on current patterns, trends and forecasts? Will Alberta’s real estate industry be shielded? 
This is an event you won’t want to miss!

Todd Hirsch is a Senior Economist at ATB Financial and Co-author of the Boiling Frog Dilemma
