About the Speakers


Timothy Lane was appointed Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, effective February 2009. As a member of the Bank’s Governing Council, he shares responsibility for decisions with respect to monetary policy and financial system stability, and for setting the strategic direction of the Bank. He oversees the Bank’s funds management and currency functions –notably including the Bank’s ongoing research and analysis of developments in financial technology, crypto-assets and digital currencies.

Mr. Lane’s responsibilities as Deputy Governor have covered a series of different areas. From 2014 through July 2018, he was responsible for the Bank’s analysis of international economic developments in support of monetary policy decisions – serving as the Bank’s G7 and G20 Deputy. Previously, he was responsible for overseeing the Bank’s work on financial markets (2010-13) and its analysis of Canadian economic developments (2009-10). He joined the Bank in August 2008 as an Adviser to the Governor.

Prior to joining the Bank, he served for 20 years on the staff of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington, DC. During that period, he worked on a wide range of issues and contributed to the IMF’s work on a number of countries. He has published research on various topics including monetary policy, financial crises, IMF reform, and economic transition. During 2004-05, Mr. Lane was a Visiting Fellow at the University of Oxford. He has also served as Assistant Professor of Economics at Michigan State University (1984-88) and at the University of Iowa (1983-84).

Harriet Jackson was appointed Deputy Managing Director of the Bank’s International Economic Analysis Department (INT), effective November 1, 2017. In this capacity, she is a member of the Bank’s senior leadership team, overseeing analysis on global economic developments and their implications for Canadian monetary policy.

Ms. Jackson first joined the Bank in 2007 as Principal Researcher in the Research department, now Canadian Economic Analysis (CEA). She later became Policy Advisor in INT, leading the department’s contribution to the Bank’s flagship publication, the Monetary Policy Report. She was appointed Senior Officer in CEA in August 2015, providing support to the fixed announcement date process and overseeing the work of the Regional Analysis Division.
