According to a recent Statistics Canada release, the consumer prices rose slightly in the 12 month to September and remained unchanged from August at 1.2%.

What is Wellbeing? – The presence of the highest possible quality of life in its full breadth of expression, focused on but not necessarily exclusive to: good living standards, robust health, a sustainable environment, vital communities, an educated populace, balanced time use, high levels of democratic participation, and access to and participation in leisure and culture.
