A unique tool to help measure the effects of inflation in Canada.
Calgary, AB, Nov 27, 2014 -- A new tool was launched by a team of Calgary-based web developers to help Canadians measure the effect of inflation on the value of their dollar.
InflationCalculator.ca is a user-friendly and accurate calculator that uses the latest Consumer-Price-Index rates published by Statistics Canada to calculate the difference in dollar value between two dates. The calculator can go back all the way to January 1914.
To ensure the data is correct and up to date, the inflation calculator extracts CPI rates from Statistics Canada's website as soon as they are published (monthly basis). The website is still under development, as the team is currently adding provincial calculator for all 13 provinces and territories. Certain major cities like Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Montreal will also have their own inflation calculator on the website.
Inflation Calculator is free tool to measure the difference in the Canadian dollar's purchasing power across two different years.
