  • Inside Access: Monetary Policy in a Low Interest Rate Environment

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.

Within the context of falling oil prices and weakened international financial stability, it is possible that the Bank of Canada could decide to lower its overnight rate target to 25 basis points in the near future. It may then be faced with the necessity of providing monetary stimulus in an environment with a very low or even a negative overnight rate. Join this conversation to explore the appropriate use of quantitative easing to encourage spending and to stimulate the economy, without having to drive down interest rates.  

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Allie Kehoe at akehoe@cdhowe.org or 416-800-0476.
