La Banque du Canada maintient son taux directeur à 1,75 %

La Banque du Canada maintient le taux cible du financement à un jour à 1,75 %. La banque centrale agit ainsi en raison des signes de ralentissement économique observés ces derniers mois autant dans le monde qu’au Canada.

Selon la Banque du Canada, « l’expansion économique mondiale continue de se modérer », ce qui devrait entraîner un certain ralentissement, selon l’institution qui prévoit une croissance économique de 3,4 % cette année alors qu’elle était de 3,7 % en 2018.

Bien que la croissance demeure solide aux États-Unis, la perspective d’un conflit commercial prolongé entre la Chine et les États-Unis ainsi que la baisse mondiale des prix du pétrole brut, qui affecte directement l’économie canadienne, incitent la banque centrale à la prudence.

« La chute des prix mondiaux du pétrole a un effet important sur les perspectives canadiennes », prévient la Banque du Canada dans un communiqué.

Les prix du pétrole brut qui a chuté de 25 % sous les prévisions en novembre dernier a en effet engendré un sérieux coup de frein des investisseurs dans le domaine pétrolier qui est l’un des principaux moteurs économiques du pays.

À cela s’ajoutent les dépenses de consommation des ménages canadiens qui ont été moins importantes que prévues et un ralentissement des investissements immobiliers ces derniers mois au pays.

En conséquence, l’institution estime maintenant que le PIB réel devrait croître de 1,7 % en 2019, soit 0,4 point de pourcentage de moins que dans ses perspectives d’octobre.

Considérant la situation et l’inflation qui est contenue dans la fourchette des 2 %, la Banque du Canada a préféré attendre et observer l’évolution de la situation avant de hausser son taux directeur.

L’institution prévient cependant qu’il devra y avoir des hausses nécessaires du taux directeur en 2019, mais pas pour le moment.

La Banque du Canada souligne par ailleurs que la situation économique demeure bonne au Canada qui affiche une croissance de l’emploi soutenue et un taux de chômage à son plus bas niveau depuis 40 ans.

Biometric Vaccines Are Here Preceding Forced Digital ID

The future of vaccines is here, just in time for the coming forced digital ID. This isn’t some sci-fi movie based on some conspiracy theorists’ idea of Revelation where every living being is required to be tagged. Biometric vaccines are real, are in use and have been deployed in the United States.

Biometric vaccines are immunizations laced with digital biometrics, created from merging the tech industry with big pharma. This new form of vaccine injects microchips into the body creating a global ID matrix to track and control every person. Not only has this satanic system already been rolled out, billions may already have been injected unaware.

ID2020 Alliance, a program aimed at chipping every person on earth, has collaborated with GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations) to inject these microchips into the body through immunization.

Where to Live Now: A data-driven look at Ottawa neighbourhoods

Editor

What does community have to do with buying a house? Do people really want friendly neighbours, or do they just want the most square footage for their buck?

In The Village Effect: How Face-to-Face Contact Can Make Us Healthier, Happier and Smarter, Montreal psychologist Susan Pinker cited a 2010 study conducted at Brigham Young University in Idaho that analyzed relationship data for more than 300,000 people over nearly eight years. She discovered that people who were integrated into their communities had half the risk of dying during that time as those who led more solitary lives. In Pinker’s analysis, integration meant simple interactions such as exchanging baked goods, babysitting, borrowing tools, and spur-of-the-moment visits — exactly the kinds of exchanges we saw grow when COVID-19 forced us all to stay home.

For this year’s real estate feature in the Spring/Summer 2020 print edition, we crunched the numbers to find the neighbourhoods where we think you’re most likely to find such opportunities for engagement. Using data available through the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study (ONS), we chose six indicators that we believed would attract those looking to connect with the people around them. Omitting rural areas, we awarded points to each neighbourhood according to where it landed in the ranking. (In the event of a tie, we used a secondary indicator of the same theme to refine the ranking.) You’ll find the ten neighbourhoods that performed the best according to those six indicators listed below, along with resident profiles and notable destinations in each ’hood — though many have been forced to adapt to COVID-19, most are offering delivery and/or take-out, and we are hopeful they will resume normal operations once it is safe to do so.
