Commenting on the latest inflation reading, Royce Mendes, senior economist at CIBC World Markets, noted:

“The inflation numbers were more muted than we and the Bank of Canada had feared. As a result, there are even fewer reasons to rush a rate hike in January, when the economy could be dealing with another harsh wave of Covid.”
