Bank of Canada Maintains Benchmark Rate

The Bank of Canada announced today that it is keeping the overnight rate unchanged as they monitor the evolution of NAFTA negotiations and the outlook for inflation. Household debt levels are improving, the housing market is stabilizing, and business investment and exports are “growing solidly”. The Bank noted that higher rates will be warranted but they “will continue to take a gradual approach.” The next rate-setting day is October 24th.
