The Bank of Canada bank releases the rate statement followed by the decision on the interest rate 8 times per year. While the interest rate may remain unchanged, the bank may provide its overview of the economic conditions and offer clues on the outcome of future decisions. At the previous meeting on January 22, the BOC kept its interest rate unchanged at 1.75%. The bank announced the risks remaining in the economy and noted that it will continue following them closely.

The Canadian dollar weakened greatly after his dovish comments. As coronavirus continues making markets uncertain, let's see what Canada's regulator tells us this time.
