Canadian prices for rubber, leather and plastic fabricated products rose 0.2% in April from March and were up 3.5% year on year from April 2011.

Canada’s overall Industrial Product Price Index (IPPI) was unchanged in April from March, as increases in prices for petroleum and coal products and chemicals were offset by a decline in prices for primary metal products, the agency said.
