The Export Import Price Report collects prices for representative commodities directly from Canadian exporters and importers. These prices are used to construct the Export Import Price Index (EIPI), which measures the change over time in the prices of goods purchased abroad by Canadian importers or sold to foreign buyers by Canadian exporters. The EIPI is also used to improve estimates of trade and real gross domestic product (GDP), and to measure import and export price trends for detailed and aggregate product groups. This information allows for greater international comparability and for better tracking of inflationary pressure in the economy.

Your information may also be used by Statistics Canada for other statistical and research purposes. In addition, information from partially completed or unsaved questionnaires may be retained and used.
