There are signs that the interest rates may stay low for some time to come.

Senior deputy governor of the Bank of Canada, Carolyn Wilkins says that output growth may stay lower than it was before the financial crisis and there may therefore need to be continued stimulus for the economy over a longer period.

That would include lower interest rates; not the 1 per cent we have seen over the last four years, but more in the 3 to 4 per cent range rather than the 4.5 per cent of the mid 2000’s.
