Tiff Macklem

On Friday, February 26, 2010 the Bank of Canada announced that Tiff Macklem (Western Economics Ph.D., 1989), currently Senior Associate Deputy Minister at the Department of Finance, will take on the role of Senior Deputy Governor at the Bank. The appointment begins on or about July 1, 2010 — at the conclusion of the G20 leaders’ summit in Toronto. A recent article in the Financial Post characterizes Tiff’s new position as that of the central bank’s 'chief operating officer', and the second-most senior policy maker on its key governing council.
