Buying power of $5,500 in 2025

This chart shows a calculation of buying power equivalence for $5,500 in 2005 (price index tracking began in 1914).

For example, if you started with $5,500, you would need to end with $7,856.76 in order to "adjust" for inflation (sometimes refered to as "beating inflation").

Future inflation is estimated at 2.00%.

When $5,500 is equivalent to $7,856.76 over time, that means that the "real value" of a single Canadian dollar decreases over time. In other words, a dollar will pay for fewer items at the store.

This effect explains how inflation erodes the value of a dollar over time. By calculating the value in 2005 dollars, the chart below shows how $5,500 is worth less over 20 years.
