Farm Input Price Index, fourth quarter 2019
The Farm Input Price Index (2012=100) is now available for the fourth quarter.
Note to readers
The Farm Input Price Index is an indicator of the change in input costs faced by Canadian farmers. The indexes are not seasonally adjusted.
The indexes are available for 13 geographic areas: each of the 10 provinces, Eastern Canada (Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario), Western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia) and Canada total (excluding the territories).
The Farm Input Price Index is subject to an eight-quarter revision period after dissemination of a given quarter's data.
Statistics Canada has launched the Producer Price Indexes Portal as part of a suite of portals for prices and price indexes. This webpage provides Canadians with a single point of access to a wide variety of statistics and measures related to producer prices.
The video "Producer Price Indexes" is available on the Statistics Canada Training Institute webpage. It provides an introduction to Statistics Canada's producer price indexes—what they are, how they are produced and what they are used for.
