Released: 2023-03-30

The Couriers and Messengers Services Price Index (2019=100) is now available for February.

  Note to readers

The Couriers and Messengers Services Price Index (CMSPI) is a monthly index that measures the price changes for courier and messenger services provided by long- and short-distance delivery companies to Canada-based business clients.

Data are available at the national level only.

With each release, data for the previous six months may have been revised. The CMSPI is not seasonally adjusted.

With the release of April 2022 data on May 31, 2022, table 18-10-0072-01 has been archived and replaced with table 18-10-0275-01 with the 2019=100 basket and methodology update.


The Technical guide for the Couriers and Messengers Services Price Index (CMSPI) is now available. This document provides details on the methodology used to calculate the CMSPI.

Statistics Canada 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.
