Statistics Canada says in a new report issued Tuesday that improvement in economic output last year was heavily slanted toward resource-rich regions.
Saskatchewan, which also benefited from a bump in the agriculture sector, posted a 4.8% surge in gross domestic product in 2013, while oil-rich Alberta realized a 3.9% growth rate.
Newfoundland and Labrador, which also has a resource-based economy, actually led the country in GDP improvement with a booming 7.9% acceleration, but that was somewhat misleading because it came in the wake of a 4.2% slump in 2012.
Alberta will continue to outperform but Saskatchewan will be at about the national average
Royal Bank of Canada has a GDP forecast by province for 2014 and 2015.
The US recovery will help Ontario, BC and Quebec
