2013–2014: 1st Quarter (April, May and June 2013)

Table of contents

Overview

Nutrition North Canada (NNC) provided over $15.5 million in subsidy during April, May and June 2013. Ten foods subsidized at the program's higher subsidy level accounted for more than half this amount: meat, all fresh fruits, all fresh vegetables, milk, bread, frozen potato products, yogurt, eggs, poultry and UHT milk. Since April 2013, all the fruits and all the vegetables have been regrouped in two separate categories instead of thirteen to facilitate the classification for program participants.

Of the products subsidized at the lower subsidy level, unsweetened juice (containers of more than 250 ml), pizza, ice cream and perishable combination foods received the most subsidy during the quarter. This is similar to what was reported for the 1st quarter of 2012-2013.

The amount of subsidy provided by NNC during the first quarter of 2013-2014 was down slightly by 5% compared to the same period in 2012-2013. This decrease is attributed to the end of the transition period from the previous program (Food Mail) in October 2012 when non-food items and most non-perishable food became ineligible for a subsidy. There has been an increase of 4% in subsidy towards food items that are still eligible.

Data by Product Category

This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed by product category between April 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013, and the quantity of products that were subsidized during this period. Product categories are listed in descending order based on the amount of subsidy; the category that received the highest amount of subsidy is listed first, followed by the category that received the second highest amount of subsidy, and so on. Numbers in the table are preliminary. Values are subject to change.

This chart shows what percentage of total subsidy payments was applied to specific product categories between April 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013. Because non-prescription drugs and country foods shipped from northern plants received less than 1% of the subsidy payments, these categories are not shown in the chart. The chart is based on data in the table above.
