BOC Still Sees QT Ending In 2025, Defends QE Policies

BOC
  • BoC Deputy Governor Sharon Kozicki defends QE in speech in Ottawa this Thursday, saying "the unwinding of QE through QT has gone smoothly." Politicians have targeted the Bank for its policy decisions. 
  • "If inflation continues to ease—and our confidence that inflation is headed sustainably to the 2% target continues to increase—it is reasonable to expect further cuts."
  • "The bar for us to use QE again is very high."

  • BoC to publish a report by external experts reviewing its pandemic policies early next year.
