The rate of increase of the index mentioned in the first paragraph shall be the ratio between the arithmetical mean of that index published by Statistics Canada under the Statistics Act (Statutes of Canada, 1970-71-72, chapter 15) for each month of the calendar year ending on 31 December immediately preceding the fiscal year concerned, and the arithmetical mean of that index so published for each month of the previous calendar year.
For each fiscal year, the Gouvernement, by an order published in the Gazette officielle du Québec, shall establish the applicable rates determined under this section.
