On December 5, the Ottawa Board of Trade and Ottawa Business Journal will host its Local Breakfast Series event at the Shaw Centre.
The Deputy Governor will discuss Canadian and global economic developments and how they were taken into account in the December interest rate decision.
Economic Progress Report speeches are scheduled to follow the interest rate decisions that are not accompanied by a Monetary Policy Report. Delivered by members of Governing Council, these speeches discuss how economic conditions and risks to the inflation outlook have evolved and provide insight into the key issues figuring in the deliberations about the rate decision.
