Overnight rate maintained at one per cent

The Bank of Canada today announced yesterday it was maintaining its overnight rate at 1 per cent.

"Recent data reinforce the Bank's view that the earlier pickup in inflation was attributable to the temporary effects of higher energy prices, exchange rate pass-through, and other sector-specific factors rather than to any change in domestic economic fundamentals."
