The Bank of Canada's "entire chop" to projected 2019 growth - from 2.1 per cent to 1.7 per cent - is attributable to lower domestic demand, Bank of Montreal's Chief Economist Douglas Porter said Wednesday. The Bank of Canada has estimated it will no longer need to hike the rate once it reaches a "neutral" level of between 2.5 and 3.5 per cent - a destination range Poloz said is under review and could be updated in April.

The central bank revised down its expectations for the sector, which it now expects to shrink in 2019 after previously forecasting a small gain. As expected, CPI inflation eased to 1.7% in November, due to lower gasoline prices. Headline inflation is expected to remain below target in the near term before returning to 2 percent by the end of this year, with a similar rate likely in 2020.

As these transitory effects unwind and excess capacity is absorbed, inflation will return to around the 2 per cent target by late 2019.
