You’re not alone. Canadians across the country are facing increasing food costs.
In fact, the food inflation rate in November (11.4%) was the fastest year-over-year increase since 1981.
What does mean for the average family?
According to Canada’s Food Price Report for 2023, a family of 4 will spend $16,288.41 on food this year ($1,357.37 a month) which is up $1,065.60 from 2022.
A recent Equifax survey showed that Nearly six-in-ten respondents (59%) in a “are using coupons and looking for deals more at grocery stores versus last year.” Just over half of Canadians (54%) are “cutting back on grocery shopping altogether.” And, alarmingly, a survey by the Canadian Hub for Applied and Social Research at the University of Saskatchewan found that almost 20% of us are eating smaller meals or skipping meals because of high food prices.
