TORONTO, Feb. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - The C.D. Howe Institute's Monetary Policy Council (MPC) today recommended that the Bank of Canada keep its target for the overnight rate, the very short-term interest rate it targets for monetary policy purposes, at 1.00 percent at its next announcement on March 5, 2014. The Council further called for the Bank to hold the target at 1.00 percent through to March 2015.

The MPC provides an independent assessment of the monetary stance appropriate for the Bank of Canada as it aims for its 2 percent inflation target. William Robson, the Institute's President and Chief Executive Officer, chaired the Council's 84th meeting.
