The index calculation unadjusted for the highly volatile components allows for the correct estimation of inflation rate changes for an accounting period.
Impact on the marketThe index growth or the actual value rise exceeding the forecast is a positive sign for the Canadian Dollar. The significant forecast deviation may have a strong influence on the Canadian currency.

EventConsumer Price Index m / m
DescriptionThe Index monitors retail price changes for goods and services included into the consumer goods basket. The Index calculation includes food and clothing prices, education expenditures, as well as prices for public health services, transportation, utility payments and leisure. The index is a monthly calculated value and is the “barometer” of the inflation rate in any country including Canada. It is considered to be the most important inflationary indicator. The high rate of inflation raises the chances to increase the bank rate by the country’s Central Bank. Low inflation rate allows for more active economic stimulation by the Central Bank, and decreases the bank rate or applies quantitative easing in particular (when necessary).
Impact on the marketThe index growth or the actual value rise exceeding the forecast is a positive sign for the Canadian Dollar. The significant forecast deviation may have a strong influence on the Canadian currency.
