Canada : Bank of Canada Monetary Policy Report  
Definition
Since 2009 the Bank of Canada (BoC) has regularly updated its economic view via a quarterly Monetary Policy Report. This presents base-case projections for inflation and growth in the Canadian economy as well as an assessment of the risks. The forecast provides a platform upon which the monetary authority can base its decisions with regards to any changes in official interest rates (and/or unconventional monetary instruments).

Why Investors Care
Each quarter, the MPR gives the financial markets a view of the BoC's governing council thinking. This provides important guidance especially since the BoC does not publish minutes from its policy setting meetings. The report is released at the same time as the policy announcement is made.
