Bank of Canada maintains interest rate: Read the official statement

Here’s the Bank of Canada’s official statement for its interest rate decision on Wednesday, October 30, 2019:

The Bank of Canada today maintained its target for the overnight rate at 1.75 per cent. The Bank Rate is correspondingly 2 per cent and the deposit rate is 1.5 per cent.

The outlook for the global economy has weakened further since the Bank’s July Monetary Policy Report ( MPR ). Ongoing trade conflicts and uncertainty are restraining business investment, trade, and global growth. A growing number of countries have responded with monetary and other policy measures to support their economies. Still, global growth is expected to slow to around 3 per cent this year before edging up over the next two years. Canada has not been immune to these developments. Commodity prices have fallen amid concerns about global demand. Despite this, the Canada-US exchange rate is still near its July level, and the Canadian dollar has strengthened against other currencies.
