C.D. Howe Institute's Monetary Policy Council Urges Bank Of Canada To Hold Overnight Rate At 1.00 Percent

TORONTO, April 11, 2013 /CNW/ - The C.D. Howe Institute's  Monetary Policy Council (MPC) today recommended that the Bank of Canada maintain its target for the overnight rate, the very short-term interest rate the Bank targets for monetary policy purposes, at 1.00 percent at its next announcement on April 17, 2013. The Council further called for the Bank to hold the target at 1.00 through to April of 2014.

The MPC is a panel sponsored by the C.D. Howe Institute to provide an independent assessment of the monetary stance most appropriate for the Bank of Canada as it seeks to achieve its 2 percent inflation target. Finn Poschmann, the Institute's Vice President, Research, chaired the seventy-seventh meeting of the Council.
