“The Bank of Canada is aware of the impact of its interest rate trajectory on the real economy,” added Mr. Schembri. “The bank is looking at a number of alternative monetary policy frameworks and targeting average inflation is one of them. Over time, the 2% inflation target balances costs and benefits.”
