The Governor of the Bank of Canada is due to speak about the economic outlook at the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal;. Audience questions are expected, so it will get interesting. Personally, I would be interested in hearing what they have to say about the new NAFTA agreement or, as it is called now, the USMCA. By the way, the text of the speech will be released 15 minutes in advance of the speech, but the question and answer session will be more interesting.

About Bank of Canada Governor Poloz Speaks
Speaking engagements by Bank of Canada (BoC) Governor Stephen S. Poloz are primary market movers of the Canadian dollar (CAD).

He is serving a seven-year term, concluding in 2020.Before becoming BoC Governor, Poloz completed a rich academic background. A graduate from Columbia University’s Senior Executive Program, Poloz has been a visiting scholar at the International Monetary Fund and Japan’s Economic Planning Agency.Comments from any central bank head are typically scripted in advance to avoid disrupting market behavior. Any unusually hawkish or dovish commentary from Poloz has the potential to heighten volatility dramatically facing the CAD.
