2013-2014: 4th Quarter (January, February and March 2014)

Table of contents

Overview

Nutrition North Canada (NNC) provided over $15.4 million in subsidy during January, February and March 2014. Ten foods subsidized at the program's higher subsidy level accounted for more than three quarter of this amount: all fresh fruits, meat, all fresh vegetables, fresh milk, bread, frozen potato products, yogurt, eggs, UHT milk and poultry.

Of the products subsidized at the lower subsidy level, pizza, unsweetened juice (containers of more than 250 ml), ice cream and perishable combination foods received the most subsidy during the quarter. This is similar to what was reported for the 4th quarter of 2012-2013.

The amount of subsidy provided by NNC during the fourth quarter of 2013-2014 was up 6% compared to the same period in 2012-2013.

Data by product category

This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed by product category between January 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014, 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 January 1, 2014 and March 31, 2014. 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.
