OTTAWA (Reuters) -The Bank of Canada signaled on Wednesday it could hike interest rates as soon as April 2022 and said inflation would stay above target through much of next year, due to higher energy prices and supply bottlenecks. The central bank held its key overnight interest rate at 0.25%, as expected, and said it was ending its bond-buying program, citing Canada's robust economic growth, high COVID-19 vaccination rates, and strong employment gains. "We now expect slack to be absorbed sooner, and that signals that we will be considering raising interest rates sooner than we previously thought," Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem told reporters in Ottawa after the rate decision.
