Deputy Governor Lawrence Schembri

Bank of Canada 

Lawrence Schembri became Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada in 2013. In this role, he oversees the Bank’s analysis of domestic economic developments and shares responsibility for setting monetary policy in Canada.
Mr. Schembri first came to the Bank in 1997 as a visiting Research Advisor, on sabbatical from his post as associate professor of economics at Carleton University. He joined the Bank permanently in 2001 and became Chief of the International Economic Analysis Department four years later. In 2010, Mr. Schembri was named Advisor to the Governor—a position he held until his current appointment.
Mr. Schembri holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Toronto, a Master’s in Economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science, and a PhD in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His published research has focused on exchange rates and monetary policy in open economies, the international monetary system and financial stability.


Lawrence Schembri est devenu sous-gouverneur à la Banque du Canada en 2013. Dans le cadre de ses fonctions, il surveille les analyses que fait la Banque de l’évolution de l’économie canadienne et partage la responsabilité des décisions touchant la formulation de la politique monétaire au pays.

M. Schembri est entré à la Banque pour la première fois en 1997, en qualité de conseiller en recherches invité. Il était alors en congé sabbatique de son poste de professeur agrégé d’économie à l’Université Carleton. Il a par la suite intégré la Banque de façon permanente en 2001, et a été promu, quatre ans plus tard, chef du département des Analyses de l’économie internationale. En 2010, il a été nommé conseiller du gouverneur, poste qu’il occupait encore au moment de sa nomination.

M. Schembri est titulaire d’un baccalauréat en commerce de l’Université de Toronto, d’une maîtrise en économie de la London School of Economics and Political Science et d’un doctorat en économie du Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Les travaux de recherche qu’il a publiés portent surtout sur les régimes de change et la politique monétaire en économie ouverte, le système monétaire international et la stabilité financière.
