About CPI (MoM) Canada
Canadian CPI (MoM) is a primary measurement of inflationary pressures facing the CAD. It is derived and presented by the National Statistics Bureau, a governmental entity. Canadian CPI (MoM) is a comparison of retail prices facing a typical basket of goods and services, compared on a month-over-month basis.  Monetary policy decisions, trade balance, and consumer confidence are sensitive to CPI. Currency markets involving the CAD are receptive to a growing CPI, as it is a signal of inflation. As inflationary pressures grow or reside, the Bank of Canada (BOC) crafts monetary policy accordingly. High CPI values are often viewed as a precursor for tightening monetary policy toward the CAD, while low readings are conducive to a dovish tone.Canadian CPI is capable of swaying CAD valuations dramatically. Strong values lead to bullish participation for the CAD and lagging CPI facilitates bearish price action.

Well, down obviously since inflation declined once again. Albeit, the decline was smaller than expected.
