OTTAWA, April 9 (Reuters) - Private sector economists estimate that Canada's economy will grow at about 2 percent this year and will pick up after that, Finance Minister Joe Oliver said on Thursday.

Oliver also told reporters the government was closely watching the booming residential real estate market and would take action to calm it down "if necessary." (Reporting by Leah Schnurr, David Ljunggren; Editing by Ted Botha)
