ABOUT THE TOPIC
On October 24th, the Bank of Canada will release its quarterly Monetary Policy Report.
Have inflationary pressures eased or grown in recent months? Is the economy operating close to capacity? How prominent a role will recent trade developments play in monetary policy decisions? Is the Bank biased towards a tighter monetary policy or towards the status quo? What are the main risks to the economic outlook?
Join us to hear a detailed overview of the Bank's policies and strategies, plus a look at the current economic climate and its implications for inflation.
