In his address, Poloz discusses the central bank’s risk management approach to monetary policy and how it deals with economic uncertainty. It is tradition for the outgoing Bank of Canada governor to deliver remarks at this lecture in the last few months of their tenure as governor. This year’s lecture is held in a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (May 25, 2020)
