Forecasts for a Bank of Canada interest-rate cut this year are building.

The possibility of a rate cut started to creep up after the BOC said on Sept. 7 that risks to inflation had “tilted somewhat to the downside.”
Canada’s main inflation rate decelerated to 1.1 per cent in August from 1.3 per cent in the month prior

The Canadian dollar weakened 0.1 per cent to $1.3099 per U.S. dollar at 11:08 a.m. in Toronto. The currency is expected to weaken to $1.32 by the end of the year, according to forecasts compiled by Bloomberg.

The bank’s next announcement is on Oct. 19.
