Canadian Fixed-Income Forum

The Canadian Fixed-Income Forum (CFIF) is a group set up by the Bank of Canada to facilitate the sharing of information between market participants and the Bank on the Canadian fixed-income market. You can find what we do and how we're organized, related market notices as well as our members. We also provide a list of our meetings.

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.
