Amid the global pandemic, Outgoing Bank of Canada governor Stephen Polz said that the bank will continue on. In fact, he said that the bank’s functioning was a key to keep the economy functioning and healthy. Ongoing programs include increased spending and increased participation in the federal government’s treasury system. This, in turn, will help to support a functioning of a particular market for all Canadians and will improve the financial burden of the current pandemic.
- The Bank of Canada has continued strong lending programs during the pandemic, which are believed to help keep the economy going.
- The current governor of the bank recently made a statement about the programs that the bank has at the moment.
- The bank is also focusing on programs to keep the mortgage rates stable.
