Today, the 2018–19 Debt Management Strategy Consultations Summary is being published in conjunction with the release of the Government of Canada’s Debt Management Strategy for 2018–19.

In September and October 2017, officials from the Department of Finance and the Bank of Canada consulted with government securities distributors, institutional investors and other interested parties on issues related to the design and operation of the Government of Canada’s domestic debt program for 2018–19.

Comments received during these consultations were taken into consideration in the development of the Debt Management Strategy for 2018–19.

The Bank of Canada and the Department of Finance thank all parties for the comments they provided during the consultation process and as always welcome additional feedback on the Debt Management Strategy over the course of the year.
