On April 10, the Bank of Canada announced that it will maintain the bank rate at 5%. This decision reflects the Bank's assessment that monetary policy is effectively mitigating inflationary pressures. Although inflation is on a downward trajectory, the Bank remains cautious, acknowledging that it will take time to confirm the sustainability of this progress. The Bank's projections indicate that inflation will hover around 3% into the second quarter of 2024, then decrease below 2.5% in the latter half of the year, with expectations of returning to the 2% target by 2025. This outlook suggests a measured approach to monetary policy, with the Bank poised to adjust its strategy as economic indicators evolve.
