This chart shows what percentage of the total subsidy transfer between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012 was applied to specific product categories. Because non-prescription drugs and country foods shipped from registered northern processing plants received less than 1% of the subsidy transfer these categories are not shown in the chart. The chart is based on data in the table above.

Data per Capita

This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed and the product quantities that were subsidized between April 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012, on a per capita (per person) basis. The table includes all communities that were eligible for a full subsidy. Population counts from the 2011 Census were used to calculate the per capita values. Within a province or territory, communities are listed in descending order based on the per capita amount; the community with the highest per capita amount of subsidy is listed first, followed by the community with the second highest amount of subsidy, and so on.
