TORONTO, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Canada is planning to issue a global bond denominated in U.S. dollars later this week, subject to market conditions, the country’s Department of Finance said on Wednesday.
Issuing a global bond provides funds to supplement and diversify Canada’s foreign exchange reserves, the government said. Canada is one of the few countries with an undisputed triple A credit rating, so its bonds tend to be greatly sought after by international investors.
