In partnership with the IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO), CIGI is hosting a roundtable discussion of monetary and financial sector policies in Canada. The IEO has launched an evaluation of the IMF’s advice to countries on unconventional monetary policies and has picked Canada as one of its case studies. Participants will discuss Canadian monetary and macroprudential policies over the past decade, Canada’s role in fostering international monetary cooperation through the G20 and other forums, and on the IMF’s advice to the Bank of Canada and other government agencies. IEO director Charles Collyns and his staff will make brief presentations to set the stage for the discussion in each session. The IEO operates at an arm’s length from IMF management and staff and carries out in-depth assessments of IMF activities with the goal of improving the quality of IMF advice to its member countries.
