The Index of Consumer Confidence is based on the Conference Board’s survey of Canadian households. It tracks consumers’ levels of optimism regarding current economic conditions, personal financial positions, short-term employment outlook, and making major purchases—as well as their expectations for the coming six months.

This index is a crucial indicator of near-term sales for companies in the consumer products sector.
