Archived - Department of Finance Tables the Debt Management Strategy for 2015–16

March 30, 2015 – Ottawa, Ontario – Department of Finance

Finance Minister Joe Oliver today tabled in Parliament the Debt Management Strategy for 2015–16.

The Financial Administration Act requires that the Government table in Parliament, prior to the start of the fiscal year, a report on the anticipated borrowing to be undertaken in the year ahead, including the purposes for which the money will be borrowed.

The Debt Management Strategy sets out the Government of Canada’s objectives, strategy and plans for the management of its domestic and foreign debt, other financial liabilities and related assets.

The Government will continue to use a variety of instruments to fund its operations but will cease the issuance of 3-year bonds. This will allow for the building of larger benchmark sizes in the core 2- and 5-year sectors, which will increase liquidity and support the well-functioning of these important sectors.
