Bank of Canada lowers benchmark rate

The Bank of Canada announced today that it is lowering its key rate down to 0.50 per cent given faltering global growth, a lower outlook for Canadian growth and increased downside risks to inflation. The Bank notes that “additional monetary stimulus is required to help return the economy to full capacity and inflation sustainability to target.”
