Data from Statistics Canada showed that the CPI edged down 0.1 percent on a seasonally adjusted monthly basis in September, unchanged from August. Economists has forecast a 0.3 percent drop.

Core inflation, excluding food and energy, ticked up 0.1 percent after a 0.2 percent increase in the previous month.
