Producer prices are the prices at which businesses sell their products or services to others (for example, the government, consumers or other businesses).
Producer Price Indexes (PPI) track the average change in prices Canadian producers receive or pay for goods and services over time.

There are many producer price indexes, covering a wide range of economic activities, such as manufacturing, construction, professional services, distributive trades and financial services.

Statistics Canada publishes producer price data that can be used for many things including:

  • Financial planning, contract escalation and budgeting
  • Identifying sources of inflation in the economy and monitor economic trend
  • Calculating the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – a measure of growth of the economy over time
