What we do

The Canadian Fixed-Income Forum (Forum) is a senior level industry-wide committee established by the Bank of Canada to discuss developments in fixed-income market structure and functioning, market practices, and related policy issues. The goals of the Forum are to:

  • enhance the efficiency and resilience of the Canadian fixed-income market;
  • improve the quality, clarity and market-wide understanding of Canadian fixed-income trading practices;
  • evaluate and propose changes to market infrastructure;
  • communicate any recommendations and analysis to oversight authorities, regulators, industry groups and other market participants as needed.

The Forum will not discuss monetary policy or policy issues directly relating to the size and distribution of the federal government’s debt programme which are covered through other fora.

How we're organized

The Forum’s membership will be drawn from senior individuals in the Canadian financial community, across both buy and sell side firms, who are active in Canadian fixed-income, ensuring a broad geographical representation.
