How to calculate the inflation rate for CA$1 since 1967

Start with the inflation rate formula:

CPI in 2017 / CPI in 1967 * 1967 CAD value = 2017 CAD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Canadian CPI was 18.4 in the year 1967 and 130.4 in 2017:

130.4 / 18.4 * CA$1 = CA$7.09

CA$1 in 1967 has the same "purchasing power" as CA$7.09 in 2017.
