The Consumer Price Index: FB12-7/8-2013E-PDF

"The Consumer Price Index (CPI) provides a broad measure of the cost of living in Canada. While there are other ways to measure price changes, the CPI is the most important indicator because of its widespread use, for example, to calculate changes in government payments such as the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security"--p. [1].
