It was the first month-over-month decline in the inflation rate in a year. However, prices for food purchased from stores were up 9.9% in July, compared to the 9.4% advanced posted in June.

Binding arbitration has resulted in a new two-year contract agreement between CP Rail and its workers.  CP announced the deal with Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) earlier this week, one that includes a 3.5% wage increase in 2022 and 2023 and increased benefits. Under the arbitration decision, the TCRC – which represents approximately 3,000 locomotive engineers, conductors, train and yard workers across Canada - will also join a CP Pension Improvement Account.
