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. This decision has been taken after a thorough review of these rates and in keeping with the Bank’s policy of only publishing reliable data using appropriate sources and calculation methodologies.
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. These new BA rates will be publicly available on the IIROC’s website on a delayed basis IIROC’s website.
The historical data for these rates will continue to be available on the Bank of Canada website at the Selected Historical Interest Rates page.
