The Printing industry in Ontario has been experiencing long-term decline since 2005. This is due to the global trend of digital media pressuring the need and demand for printing services, as online advertising and publishing have made these services more affordable. However, with the Canadian-dollar effective exchange rate index (CERI) depreciating over the five years to 2019, national demand grew, supporting the province's growth. With national demand for printing services being offshored to countries such as China, the industry is expected to have experienced limited growth. The Ontario landscape is expected to offset the industry's decline at the national more.
