Key Quotes:

“A lot of attention will be on May’s consumer price index. Headline prices could have progressed 0.8% m/m before seasonal adjustment, helped in part by a sharp rebound in gasoline prices. This should allow the annual inflation rate to increase from -0.2% to 0.1%. The 12-month rate of CPI-common, meanwhile, should remain unchanged at 1.6%.”

“We will get an indication of consumer spending in early Q2 in Canada with the publication of April’s retail sales. Government-mandated lockdowns no doubt resulted in a historic decline in overall sales; we expect overall retail spending to have dropped about 14% month on month, hurt by lowers sales at auto dealers and gasoline stations. Excluding autos, retail revenues may have sunk 19.0%.
