Bloomberg Canadian Fixed Income Conference

Now in its 7th year, The Canadian Fixed-Income Conference offers an in-depth look at the market for Canadian bonds, the economy, and monetary policy. The Bank of Canada is holding steady for now as the country copes with turmoil in the oil sector, slower economic growth and heightened volatility in financial markets. Is this a soft patch, or are other factors at play? The conference is just five days before the federal election, so politics will be in focus. Will Prime Minister Justin Trudeau secure a second term or will Andrew Scheer ride a populist wave to power? At this full-day conference, Bloomberg journalists will interview corporate and government leaders, investors and analysts to provide a deeper understanding of Canada’s fixed-income market.
