OTTAWA - Firms remain upbeat about future sales, business investment and hiring — but some are predicting a moderation following last year's red-hot pace, the Bank of Canada's latest business outlook survey said Monday.

The central bank's quarterly poll of about 100 firms found overall business sentiment remained positive and above historical averages, even though the indicator dipped somewhat compared with January.

This issue of the Financial System Review reflects the Bank ’s judgment that high household indebtedness and housing market imbalances remain the most important vulnerabilities. A new direction for Canada ’s bank notes.

Banking in Canada is widely considered one of the safest banking systems in the world, ranking as the world's soundest banking system for the past six years according to reports by the World Economic Forum.

The survey found companies expected sales to grow at a faster pace over the next 12 months, but it noted several of the firms anticipated a moderation of activity following the strong performance of the past year. The responses often reflected expectations of a return to a more sustainable pace, the report said.

Firms polled also anticipated stronger sales overall from increasing U.S. demand. However, some also said they expected protectionism and reduced competitiveness could limit the benefits they see from the improving American economy.

The report said most firms still planned to boost investments in machinery and equipment over the next year, although the indicator edged down compared to its reading in the January survey. The responses showed plans for greater spending were most widespread in the services sectors.

The poll also found hiring intentions increased — and were widespread across regions and most sectors — amid continued concerns that labour shortages had intensified over the last year.

"Labour-related constraints continue to be the most-prevalent obstacle to scaling-up operations in response to an unanticipated increase in demand," the report said.

"On balance, firms anticipate capacity pressures to further intensify over the next 12 months, pushed by strong sales prospects and expected difficulties finding labour."
