Canada Should Publish Meeting Minutes, C.D. Howe Says

Updated on

Canada’s central bank should start publishing minutes of interest-rate meetings including any dissenting views, to meet the standards of counterparts in the U.S. and U.K., a research group said.

Such a move would improve the Ottawa-based Bank of Canada’s transparency and improve public understanding of the process used to determine interest rates, the Toronto-based C.D. Howe Institute said in a report today.
