  • Canada’s Domestic Stability Buffer: Swimming Against the Tide

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

OSFI’s Domestic Stability Buffer is meant to be drawn down in times of stress, so Canadian banks don’t have to sell assets and can continue to provide loans. Buffers are buffers, not floors. In his remarks to the C.D. Howe Institute, OSFI Assistant Superintendent Jamey Hubbs will discuss the Domestic Stability Buffer and its design, and OSFI’s continuing efforts to inform market participants about the buffer and its intended use.
