Telecommunications services producer price indexes

Released: 2022-10-12

Data from the telecommunications services producer price indexes (first quarter 2020=100) are now available for the second quarter of 2022.

  Note to readers

The telecommunications services producer price indexes (TSPPI) measure quarterly price changes for the following telecommunications services: fixed telecommunications services (except Internet access) and cable, satellite and other program distribution services.

With each release, data for the previous quarter may have been revised. Data are also subject to an annual revision that is released along with second-quarter data for the following reference year. The indexes are not seasonally adjusted. Data are available at the Canada level only.

With the release of data for the fourth quarter of 2019, the telecommunications services price indexes were renamed "telecommunications services producer price indexes."

Starting with the fourth quarter 2020 reference period, the TSPPI series have been converted from 2016=100 to first quarter 2020=100.

The data table for this index (18-10-0066) is no longer available. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. To obtain a copy of the data, please contact us.


Statistics Canada has launched the Producer Price Indexes Portal as a 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 compiled and what they are used for.
