November 3, 2020 – William Robson, President and CEO of the C.D. Howe Institute, announces the re-appointment of John Murray as a Senior Fellow.

“John combines the wisdom one would expect from someone with such a distinguished career in central banking with lively curiosity and readiness to re-examine questions afresh,” said Robson. “It is a delight to collaborate with him, and we at the C.D. Howe Institute look forward to his input as Canadian monetary policy navigates the challenging period ahead.”

“The C. D. Howe Institute is remarkable for the balance, breadth and rigor with which it addresses policy questions,” said Murray. “It has enriched and deepened our understanding of key issues, promoted active debate and contributed importantly to the conduct of public policy in Canada.”

John Murray held a number of senior positions during his 34-year career at the Bank of Canada, and served as a Deputy Governor from 2008 until his retirement from the Bank in 2014. He holds a BComm from Queen’s University, and an MA and PhD in Economics from Princeton University.

Prior to joining the Bank of Canada, Dr. Murray taught at the University of British Columbia, the University of North Carolina and Princeton.  Since his retirement, he has worked on contract for the Research Department and the Independent Evaluation Office of the International Monetary Fund, taught as an Adjunct Professor at Carleton University and Queen’s University, and served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.
