Regional Director (Economics)- Bank of Canada
TMAC would like to share that we have taken steps to build out partnerships with AFP Chapters across Canada, providing you access to a collective Canada-wide series of virtual educational seminars. For TMAC members, this will now expand the number of sessions you can attend at no cost throughout 2021, with a nominal $25.00 attendance fee assessed on each seminar for non-members. These partnerships complement our own TMAC sessions and reinforce our key mandates to connect, educate and support our practitioner constituents and will serve to offer additional value to your professional development.
AFP-Vancouver is delighted to virtually welcome Calista Cheung, Regional Director (Economics) Bank of Canada. Calista will present the Bank of Canada's latest outlook for the global and Canadian economies, risks to the outlook, and factors behind recent interest rate decisions.
