    Inflation Targeting in Canada: Design, Lessons, and Challenges

    Remarks David Dodge Conference on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the Banco de Mexico Mexico City, Mexico
    Today, I want to share with all of you Canada's perspective on the design of an inflation-targeting system, some of the lessons we have learned over almost 15 years of experience with explicit inflation targets, and some of the challenges that remain. This topic is timely, because the Bank of Canada's inflation-targeting agreement with the Canadian government is up for renewal next year, and I am pleased to note that, earlier today, the Government announced its intention to renew our agreement for another five years.
