Each year The Bank of Canada has eight “fixed” or pre-specified dates for announcing any changes to the official interest rate it uses to implement monetary policy—the rate of interest it charges on short-term loans to financial institutions. The Bank of Canada will also publish its quarterly Monetary Policy Report (MPR’s) concurrently with its January, April, July, and October rate announcements. The standard day for publication of all scheduled rate announcements and MPRs will be on a Wednesday. The Bank of Canada retains the option of making unscheduled rate announcements at any time in the event of extraordinary circumstances.
