according to the Bank of Canada’s webpage “difficulties in measuring inflation accurately are one reason not to aim for zero inflation” and the CPI “tends to overstate the increase in the true cost of living by an estimated 0.5 per cent per year”. With this in mind, if the central bank targeted zero inflation, really it would be targeting a small decrease in the true cost of living per annum. (Bank of Canada 2012)
