Bank of Canada Rate Cuts by 25 Basis Points

We are happy to announce that BOC, for the first time since 13th July 2023, reduced the interest rate by .25% bringing the base rate to 4.75%. The first time the Bank of Canada started tightening the cycle was in March of 2022, which is more than 2 years. Hopefully, we can see more rate cuts in the future. 


Bank's prime rate now stands at 6.95%, which will make a small impact on all Variable Interest rates and Line of Credit, that are directly related to prime.

Policy interest rate - The Bank of Canada carries out monetary policy by influencing short-term interest rates. It does this by adjusting the target for the overnight rate on eight fixed dates each year.


The next Announcement is on 24th July 2024
