Monetary Policy

Learn about the objective of Canada’s monetary policy and the main instruments used to implement it: the inflation-control target and the flexible exchange rate. See also how monetary policy works, how decisions are made and related explainers.

The Objective

The objective of monetary policy is to preserve the value of money by keeping inflation low, stable and predictable. This allows Canadians to make spending and investment decisions with more confidence, encourages longer-term investment in Canada's economy, and contributes to sustained job creation and greater productivity. This in turn leads to improvements in our standard of living.

Canada’s monetary policy framework consists of two key components that work together: the inflation-control target and the flexible exchange rate. This framework helps make monetary policy actions readily understandable, and enables the Bank to demonstrate its accountability to Canadians.

The Inflation-Control Target

At the heart of Canada’s monetary policy framework is the inflation-control target, which is two per cent, the midpoint of a 1 to 3 per cent target range. First introduced in 1991, the target is set jointly by the Bank of Canada and the federal government and reviewed every five years. However, the day-to-day conduct of monetary policy is the responsibility of the Bank’s Governing Council. The inflation-control target guides the Bank’s decisions on the appropriate setting for the policy interest rate, which is aimed at maintaining a stable price environment over the medium term. The Bank announces its policy rate settings on fixed announcement dates eight times a year.

Target for the overnight rate

The target for the overnight rate, also known as the key policy interest rate, is the interest rate that the Bank expects to be used in financial markets for one-day (or "overnight") loans between financial institutions. This key rate serves as the benchmark that banks and other financial institutions use to set interest rates for consumer loans, mortgages and other forms of lending.

Influencing short-term interest rates

To achieve the inflation target, the Bank adjusts (raises or lowers) its key policy rate. If inflation is above target, the Bank may raise the policy rate. Doing so encourages financial institutions to increase interest rates on their loans and mortgages, discouraging borrowing and spending and thereby easing the upward pressure on prices. If inflation is below target, the Bank may lower the policy rate to encourage financial institutions to, in turn, lower interest rates on their loans and mortgages and stimulate economic activity. In other words, the Bank is equally concerned about inflation rising above or falling below the target. Such an approach guards against both high inflation and persistent deflation.

Monetary policy actions take time

Monetary policy actions take time - usually between six and eight quarters - to work their way through the economy and have their full effect on inflation. For this reason, monetary policy is always forward looking and the policy rate setting is based on the Bank’s judgment of where inflation is likely to be in the future, not what it is today.

Canada’s Flexible Exchange Rate

Canada’s flexible exchange rate, or floating dollar, permits us to pursue an independent monetary policy that is best suited to Canada’s economic circumstances and is focused on achieving the inflation target. Movements in the exchange rate also provide a “buffer,” helping our economy to absorb and adjust to external and internal shocks.August 13, 2020

The Conservative Party of Canada is founded on the principles of peace and freedom on the world stage; responsible management of taxpayers' money; a welcoming land of refuge for the world’s persecuted and afflicted; the defence of clean Canadian technologies; and a clear understanding of responsibilities between levels of government.

ABOUT US

HISTORY & MISSION STATEMENT

The Beginning

On October 16th, 2003, the leaders of the Canadian Reform Conservative Alliance and the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada announced an agreement-in-principle to unite under a new political banner. In December 2003, the merger was overwhelmingly ratified by members of both parties and the Conservative Party of Canada was officially born. This unification of Canada’s conservative parties restored and rejuvenated the national political movement that has been building a stronger, safer, and better Canada for almost 150 years.

The Return to Power

The new Conservative Party of Canada elected Stephen Harper as its first leader on March 20th, 2004. Shortly after Paul Martin’s Liberal government was defeated on a motion of non-confidence, Canadians voted for change in a general election on January 23rd, 2006. Two weeks later, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his cabinet were sworn in to lead the new Government of Canada. When the global economic recession threatened, the Harper Government took timely and prudent action to ensure Canada remained on track for long-term stability. Canadians trusted a Conservative Government to continue leading Canada on a path for economic success when faced with another general election in October 2008.

  • SEND TO A FRIENDThe Data Lakes Market was valued at USD 3.74 billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 17.60 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 29.9% over the forecast period 2021 - 2026. Data lakes have become an economical option for many companies rather than an option for data warehousing. Data warehousing involves additional computing of data before entering the warehouse, unlike data lakes. The cost of maintaining a data lake is lower than a data lake owing to the number of operations and space involved in building the database for warehouses.
  • The speed of data retrieval is better for data lakes compared to data warehouses. According to O’Reilly Data Scientist Salary Survey, one-third of the data scientists spend time for doing basic operations such as necessary extraction/transformation/load (ETL), data cleaning, and basic data exploration rather than real analytics or data modeling which reduces the efficiency of the process. The growing use of IoT in many offices and informal spaces has further emphasized in need for data lakes for quicker and efficient manipulation of data.
  • The adoption of IoT device is taking place at a rapid pace. Government initiatives across the globe like building smart cities are also supporting their deployment. The proliferation of Data due to the Adoption of IoT is driving the market growth for data lakes market.
  • The businesses today are inclined to data-driven decisions. The rise in digitalization is generating an enormous amount of data with the organizations Data lakes have emerged as a practical solution to exponentially increasing data as companies need efficient and advanced data analytical capabilities. The features of data lakes of processing data on the cloud are fueling its market growth.
  • Whereas, the slow onboarding and data integration on data lakes is restricting market growth to an extent.Key Market Trends

    Banking Sector is Expected to Grow Significantly
  • Banks have been increasing the use of data lakes to integrate data across various domains to create a central database. Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) has been implementing a project to aggregate all the data ponds across its domains to create a central data lake for the banking operations which will allow the bank to shift from the typically used data warehouse architecture.
  • Banks are investing in data engineers to provide more responsive data lakes to tackle consumer requirements and also been trying to increase the utility of data for on the go solutions. State Bank of India (SBI) has been providing data lakes, apart from the typically used data warehouse, to bank executives, deputy managing director, and chief information to deliver on the go analytics.
  • The rise in digital payments by the consumers globally is boosting the amount of data stored with banks with each transaction. Hence, opportunities for big-data analytics is growing.
  • The deployment of data lakes in banking sector breaks down the number of silos. Storing data in a centrally managed infrastructure like Apache Hadoop–based data lake infrastructure helps cut down the number of information silos in an organization making data accessible to users across the enterprise.North America is Expected to have High Adoption for Data Lakes
  • According to Capgemini, more than 60% of the financial institutions in the United States believe that big data analytics offers a substantial competitive advantage over the competitors and more than 90% of the companies believe that the big data initiatives determine the chance for success in the future.
  • Data Lakes are needed for the use of Smart Meter applications. In Canada, BC Hydro uses an EMC data lake for analyzing data aggregated by various smart meters. The data then enables detecting discrepancies in the system. This has aided in achieving savings of 75% of the electricity due to theft.
  • The number of Smart Meters in the region have also been growing in usage. Owing to an increase in the usage of smart meters, huge amount of data is being generated, which needs the use of Data Lakes. According to U.S Energy Information Administration, a total of over 90 million smart meters is expected to be installed in the country by the year 2020.Competitive Landscape

    The market landscape is defined by established technologies and software providers who have a strong brand image, geographic footprint, and customer base. Companies, such as Amazon and Microsoft, which hold a significant share of the cloud space, have a competitive edge over the existing market players, due to the consumer preference for cloud-delivered solutions and services.
  • April 2019 - Temenos, the banking software company launched Temenos Data Lake and is first to market with a robust, productized data lake that integrates big data analytics into its banking software. Temenos Data Lake claims to deliver out-of-the-box data integration, preparation, and optimization to power AI-driven banking applications.
  • January 2019 - Tata Consultancy Services, a global IT service, consulting, and business solutions organization, entered the market with its data lakes solutions for Business on AWS Marketplace. The newly launched software captures and manages all types of data in a central Hadoop repository.Reasons to Purchase this report:

National Constitution and Policy Committees Representative By-Election Rules and Procedures

When the Liberal-NDP-Bloc Quebecois Coalition rejected our 2011 Budget and force an unnecessary election, Canadians responded by electing a strong, stable, national majority Conservative Government.

That majority Conservative Government replaced the old Liberal culture of entitlement with a new culture of achievement. With the leadership of Prime Minister Harper, the Conservatives led Canada to economic recovery after the global recession. Thanks in part to Canada’s Economic Action Plan, Canada created 1.2 million net new jobs and led the G7 in economic growth.

The Conservative Government also made life more affordable for hard-working Canadians and their families. By balancing major tax cuts with disciplined debt reduction and focused, prudent spending, the Conservative Government cut taxes over 180 times and lowering the GST tax to 5%. We helped millions of hard-working Canadians save money with Tax-Free Savings Accounts, the single most important personal savings vehicle since the introduction of RRSPs.

By rebuilding our Canadian Forces and adopting a new, values-based foreign policy, the Conservative Government protected Canada’s sovereignty and advanced our national interests on the world stage. Guided by our foundational values – freedom, democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, Canada asserted our sovereignty in the Arctic, pursued new international free trade agreements and strengthened our contributions to global security.

Renewal and Growth

On October 19, 2015 Canadians returned a new team of 99 Conservative MPs to Parliament. In a close and hard-fought election, Conservatives faced difficult results across the country while making gains in Quebec.

We can be proud of our Party’s legacy of sound governance. Prime Minister Stephen Harper left Canada with a balanced budget, and with a strong economy supported by low taxes.

In the period of transition following the 2015 election, the new Conservative Official Opposition selected the Hon. Rona Ambrose as interim leader. With Rona as Interim leader, and a strong Conservative team of MPs and volunteers, the Conservative Party acted as a formidable opposition to Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

On May 27th, 2017, Andrew Scheer emerged victorious and become the second permanent leader of the Conservative Party of Canada.

Under Andrew Scheer, Canada’s Conservatives began a new chapter focused on making life more affordable for Canadians. After a hard-fought election in 2019, Canada’s Conservatives returned to Ottawa with 121 Conservative MPs, the largest opposition caucus in Canadian history.

The New Leader

After the nation’s largest ever political leadership election, with nearly 270,000 registered members and 175,000 ballots cast, Erin O’Toole was elected leader of Canada’s Conservatives, and Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition.

Another Chapter Begins

Today’s Conservative Party is a vibrant national organization with strong grassroots support from coast to coast to coast. The Party, its caucus, and its members upholding the proud Canadian Conservative tradition.

Over the years, conservatives in Canada have fought elections under many different party banners, but the core principles of the movement have not changed: Canadian conservatives stand for sovereignty and a strong national defence; open federalism and national unity; free enterprise and individual achievement; and the opportunity for all Canadians, regardless of background, to achieve their dreams in a safe, healthy, and prosperous country.

In short, we stand for a Canada that is strong, united, independent, and free.
