Canada Consumer Price Index y/y measures the change in prices of a fixed basket of goods and services from the consumer perspective, in the reported month compared to the same month of the previous year. The basket contains goods of unchanging quality and quantity, so the index purely measures changes in consumer prices.

The indicator is considered to be one of the key measures of Canada's inflation. A higher than expected reading is seen as positive for the Canadian dollar.
