Bank of Canada cuts Interest Rate to 1.00%

Bank of Canada cut its overnight lending rate by 0.50% to 1.00%, the lowest since the central bank was formed in 1934. The decrease was inline with most economists expectations.

The previous lowest rate level set by the Bank of Canada was last seen at 1.12% in 1958.

In the past few days leading up to this morning’s announcement by the Bank of Canada, a few lenders began cutting some of their fixed term mortgage rates. It is expected that the various Canadian Banks will announce cuts to their Prime Rate either this afternoon or tomorrow.
