During March, the Bank of Canada gradually reduced the interest rate from 1.75%, where it’s been since the end of 2018, to the current level of 0.25%. Monetary policymakers expressed their commitment to respond to the economic environment as required. That means, although emergency moves have been already taken, there may be more.
