Canadian Bond Market

The Canadian bond market is the one of the largest in the world. It is dominated by the market for government bonds, of which there are around CAD 300 billion outstanding. However, Canada's debt-to-GDP ratio was the lowest (and fastest declining) in the G7 in 2004. The continual fall in the debt-to-GDP ratio reflects both economic growth and the Canadian government's commitment to maintaining balanced budgets. In contrast, the corporate bond sector has grown significantly in recent years.
