GDP Deflator Data


I have a researcher looking for GDP deflator data for provinces and territories from 1976 (or later, if 1976 is not available) to present.
I believe data at the national level is available from 1981-present in table 383-0008 under the metric "implicit price deflator"; however, I have not been able to find provincial-level data through CANSIM or the EFT. Does any such data exist?


The implicit price deflator is equal to current-dollar output, divided by real output. The output measure is consistent with the Quarterly Income and Expenditure Accounts, prepared by the Income and Expenditure Accounts Division.

GDP information is available from the National Economics account here

Below are the tables available
