New Consumer Price Index (CPI) basket weights are now available. The updated weights are based on the 2013 Survey of Household Spending (SHS). They replace the previous weights, which were based on the 2011 SHS.
The new weights will be implemented with the January 2015 CPI, which will be released on February 26.
More information about the concepts and use of the Consumer Price Index are available online in The Canadian Consumer Price Index Reference Paper (Catalogue number62-553-X) from the Browse by key resource module of our website under Publications.
