This document provides key banking and money market statistics. Released every Friday at 14:00 (ET) except where otherwise noted.
Note for users
Beginning 17 February 2012, the Weekly Financial Statistics will be published at 14:00 (ET), rather than 13:00 (ET).
Beginning January 2011, the Canadian Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Financial institutions adopting IFRS converted at the start of their first fiscal year following 31 December 2010. For the credit measures presented on pages 13, 14 and 15, the most significant effect relates to the inclusion of securitized loans on financial institutions’ balance sheets, which were previously shown as loans held by Special Purpose Corporations or NHA mortgage-backed securities. This reallocation of credit primarily affects the January and November 2011 reference months. For the monetary aggregates presented on pages 11 and 12, the most significant effect relates to the chartered banks’ reclassification of deposit liabilities to other liabilities, which resulted in decreases in deposit liabilities, and therefore historical continuity adjustments were applied to the monetary aggregates for the period February 1998 to October 2011.
