Canadian Federalist Party
Monetary Management

Monetary management's two-fold purpose is to provide Canada with a stable and independant currency market that enables the internal and external flow of goods and services.


Canada's "Financial Resources" include such things as: Cash Deposits, Gold, Securities, Mortgages, Bonds, Retained Earnings, Equity, etc. These resources form the capital available to invest in the country by individuals, businesses and government.

Equity in one's property is a Financial Resource of the property owner. Canada has enormous potential equity in natural resources, (Physical Resources), that may be sold and thus converted into Financial Resources.

Businesses and organizations deploy their Financial Resources into the other four resources through functional business systems and processes in a manner that is intended to increase the acquisition of Financial Resources.

When directing or managing any organization, from a household to a nation, it is helpful to understand that your five fundamental resources can be deployed to increase your overall mix of resources.

Excerpts from the CFP Constitution

3.1.3 Pro-Canadian party dedicated to the principle that Canada can best serve its citizens and the world by re-claiming and maintaining its political and economic sovereignty as an independent country. It is opposed to the ascendancy of "corporate rule" and those aspects of unrestricted global investment that promote colonization of the world’s smaller powers.

3.1.8 Our commitment to equality of opportunity.

3.1.13 Canada's identity and vision for the future should be rooted in and inspired by a fresh appreciation of “our land” and the supreme importance to our well-being of exploring, developing, renewing, and conserving our natural resources and physical environment.

5.1.9 We believe that governments should regard public money as “funds held in trust,” and that governments should practice fiscal responsibility — in particular, the responsibility to balance expenditures and revenues.

5.1.22 We believe that a healthy economy is important, but increasing the size of the gross national product is not in itself a sufficient goal for a civilized nation. We are concerned about the effects of economic growth – what this does to our environment, what kind of living conditions it creates, what is its effects on the countryside, what is its effects on our cities; whether a greater feeling of justice and fairness and self – fulfillment result from this growth, thereby strengthening the social order and improving the quality of national life.

5.1.25 We believe in the abolition of poverty, and the achievement of greater equality in the distribution of income, wealth and opportunity.


Canada's monetary policies are represented by the growth in value of our physical and financial resources, the amount of currency in circulation, the loans we make to other countries, the loans we receive from other countries, the loans we receive from Canadians and the reserves we hold in our national accounts.

Some of the tools we use to alter our monetary status include: increasing or decreasing government debt, changing interest rates financial institutions pay to borrow government funds, trading currencies, investing in stock markets, buying and selling various government assets, etc. etc.

The Bank of Canada influences the amount of money in our economy by altering their interest rates according to their strategies for controlling inflation within our economy. The Bank also administers Canada's financial institutions to help maintain an orderly environment of financial flows and transactions as well as represents Canada's interests in International Monetary Fund and other foreign financial institution matters.

(The Treasury Board Secretariat administers the management of funds utilized by branches of the government. It has nominal influence over monetary policies and strategies.)

The CFP recognizes the important functions carried out by the Bank of Canada and the Treasury Board Secretariat and will encourage both institutions to work to achieve greater efficiencies and opportunities for growing Canada's economy.

CFP Monetary Goals, Strategies and Policies

The CFP believes that Canada's currency value in the global market should reflect the intrinsic value of our wealth and the productivity of our citizens. Our monetary policies should counteract speculative activity in the foreign currency markets and thus protect the value of our natural resources and our workers' productivity.

With the Canadian economy representing such a small portion of the global economy, we are vulnerable to fluctuations in our currency value from relatively small international transactions. Due to the large component of natural resources in our economy, many money market specialists and major funds have associated our currency values with the global prices of natural resources. Thus, speculation in natural resource prices can have a significant impact upon the values of our manufactured goods and can significantly influence our trade balances and trade volumes.

Consequently, a major long-term policy of the CFP is to reduce the volatility of our currency value by increasing the size of our manufacturing sectors. Internal processing and utilization of our natural resources will be an important goal of the CFP.

Just as the undeveloped nations have discovered that powerful economic interests can expoit non-renewable and renewable domestic resources to the foreigner's short and long-term advantage, Canada must immediately put in place a strategy for sustaining both domestic and foreign exploitation of it's natural resources.

It is a policy of the CFP to maintain autonomy and self-control over our national lands, resources and industries.The CFP also recognizes the influence of Sovereign Funds, (Foreign Government Capital Investment pools), and large international corporations and conglomerates, in acquiring control over lands, resources and industries in Canada. Thus, guidelines will be prepared by the CFP to protect Canada's autonomy and sovereignty with respect to foreign investments and contractual obligations.

The CFP will establish a Canadian Sovereign Wealth Fund with a manadate to finance economic growth and development in Canada and to procure supplies of resources not available within our boundaries. Just as industrial corporations and other nations are invloved in such activities, the government of Canada must prudently protect and safeguard the needs of Canadians. Existing government institutions with overlapping or similar mandates will be integrated into this new entity.

With the global monetary structure becoming vulnerable to the personal interests of private capital enterprises, governments must be diligent in planning and managing their own monetary policies. Canada must be able to sustain an autonomous economy in times of international or global crises.
