Many pundits expected the Bank of Canada to increase their interest rates in the general announcement. However, the nation’s central bank stunned the entire financial world by announcing a supersized increase of 100 basis points or 1% on its interest rates, bringing the total increase to 2.5%.

This has been the bank’s biggest increase since 1998 and it was the fourth spike in a planned four-step action strategy to help reduce soaring inflation. The Bank of Canada has an inflation rate target of 2%, and current projections place that value closer to 8% at least until the end of the summer.

It’s important to note that the Bank of Canada announces overnight rate changes eight times per year. The schedule looks like this.
