ABOUT THE TOPIC
How have recent trade developments and oil price movements impacted the Bank of Canada's economic outlook? Have inflationary pressures eased or grown in recent months? How have levels of business investment and household debt evolved since the January Monetary Policy Report? Is the economy operating close to capacity? What is the outlook for economic growth, and what are the main risks to that outlook?
These and other questions are addressed in the quarterly Monetary Policy Report, setting out the factors considered by the Bank in arriving at its interest rate decision and bias.
This event will follow by only a few days the April 24 release of the Monetary Policy Report and the Bank of Canada's interest rate decision, and as such will be especially timely.
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.
