Changes to Publication of Interest Rate Statistics

As of January 2019, the Bank of Canada will no longer publish the daily, weekly or monthly prime commercial paper (CP) or bankers’ acceptance (BA) rates:

Bank of Canada Notice

The Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) will start publishing “for informational purposes only”, the 1- and 3-month transaction based BA rates on the same date.

Until December 2018, the rates were published in the Bank of Canada Daily Digest. The historical data for these rates will continue to be available on the Bank of Canada Selected Historical Interest Rates page.

Members are advised to look at their current contracts to see what, if any, impact this change may have.
