ABOUT THE TOPIC
On June 7th, the Bank of Canada will release its semi-annual Financial System Review (FSR).
The review will analyse the resilience of the Canadian financial system, looking at the main vulnerabilities and risks to financial stability. It will also highlight measures taken to mitigate those risks.
Six months ago, the Bank's November FSR identified high household debt, housing market imbalances and cyber threats as key vulnerabilities. Have recent policy measures eased those risks, or have other developments emerged that should be cause for concern?
Join us for a presentation on the report and for an opportunity to ask questions.
