Notes re the table:

Inflationary increases are implemented federally each April 1 beginning in 2019.  An inflation increase is to be implemented in the Yukon each January 1, beginning in 2019, provided that the inflation rate is above a minimum threshold, which was not the case for Jan. 2019 nor Jan. 2020.
