The first car I rode in was an early 1970s Monte Carlo. The cost of that metal beast would have been about $3,500 brand new. Today, that amount of money would have the same purchasing power as $26.184. Times change, and cars do too. One constant in our lives has been the steady up-tick of inflation, particularly in the last few years where we’ve seen dramatic inflation increases take a sizeable bite out of most Canadians’ disposable income. Our Canada Inflation Calculator allows you to compare the value of money today with years past. Simply enter a dollar value, and select the years you want to compare.


Or, if you’d like to see how your salary growth compares against Canadian inflation, we have a calculator to compare your salary against inflation. Or if rent is top of mind, try our Canada Rent Inflation Calculator.
