CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 25, 2016) - Calgary business leaders will be hanging on every word from BMO's Chief Economist, Douglas Porter when he speaks on Thursday, January 28, to a sold out luncheon hosted by the Canadian Pension & Benefits Institute (CPBI). After a year that most Albertans would like to forget and what is shaping up to be one of the worst January starts for world stock market performance on record, attendees will be interested to hear Mr. Porter's forecast for 2016.

"We're very excited to have an economist of Mr. Porter's stature present his economic forecast to our CBPI members and guests," said Cam Thickett, CPBI Regional Chair. "Calgarians are anxious for signs that this market may stabilize this year for Alberta and Canada."
