Poloz Gives First Speech as Bank of Canada Chief June 19

Stephen Poloz has scheduled his first speech as Bank of Canada Governor on June 19, less than three weeks after starting the job.

Poloz will also hold a press conference after his remarks in Oakville, Ontario, according to a notice posted today on the Ottawa-based central bank’s website. No topic for the speech was listed.

Poloz was named the new governor on May 2 to replace Mark Carney, who is leaving to take over the Bank of England. Poloz, 57, was chief executive officer of Export Development Canada, a government trade financing agency.
