TORONTO (Reuters) - The Bank of Canada named Carolyn Wilkins as its new senior deputy governor of the central bank on Friday, replacing Tiff Macklem who is leaving on May 1 for another job.
The No. 2 policymaker at the bank sits on the six-member governing council which sets interest rates. The job previously included responsibilities as the bank's chief operating officer as well, but the bank has now created a separate position for those administrative duties.
