The Bank of Canada announced it would hold interest rates steady today, but shocked many analysts by announcing they would be continuing monetary support for some time. Citing Omicron and the BC Floods, the Bank noted that Canada would require monetary support for the foreseeable future.
The Bank seemed to indicate that they would let Canada’s inflation rate run hot and keep their monetary policy unchanged, arguing that further support is needed (even with Canadian GDP up to over 5 percent growth, and 154,000 jobs added to the Canadian economy).
But the Bank of Canada will not be able to continue to kick the can down the road forever – eventually, especially in the face of red hot inflation in Canada, it will have to raise interest rates.
Expect Canada’s real estate market to continue to surge, as home buyers, real estate agents, and most on-lookers expect that the rate hikes are coming – and the longer the Bank of Canada waits to act on raising interest rates, the faster the pace of those rate-hikes will have to be.
