Canadian bond investors said the government should focus new bond sales on current 10-year and 30-year maturities rather than resorting to even longer-dated issuance, according to a consultation the central bank published Monday along with the government's fiscal update.

"A clear majority of participants, including typical long-bond investors, do not recommend 50-year or 100-year bonds at this stage," citing low yields that would curb demand, according to the BOC's report on investor comments. Treasury bills are also in high demand and there is "ample" room to sell more.

"As for potential crowding-out effects on provinces' and municipalities' long bond issuances, most market participants expressed only modest to no concerns since provinces' and municipalities' long-term instruments are considered different enough from their federal analogues."
