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

Start with the inflation rate formula:

CPI in 2018 / CPI in 1967 * 1967 CAD value = 2018 CAD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Canadian CPI was 18.4 in the year 1967 and 130.9 in 2018:

130.9 / 18.4 * CA$1 = CA$7.11

CA$1 in 1967 has the same "purchasing power" as CA$7.11 in 2018.
