2013-2014: Full Fiscal Year

Table of contents

Overview

Nutrition North Canada provided 62.8 million dollars in subsidy during its third year in operation. 24.8 million kg of nutritious perishable and non-perishable food were subsidized in 2013-2014.

Ten nutritious perishable foods accounted for more than three quarter of the annual subsidy amount: all fresh fruits, meat, all fresh vegetables, fresh milk, bread, frozen potato products, yogurt, eggs, poultry and UHT milk. These foods receive the program's higher subsidy level.

Among the items eligible for the lower subsidy level, frozen pizza, unsweetened juice (in containers of more than 250 ml), ice cream, frozen combination foods and crackers received the most subsidy (accounting for 5% of the total).

The Baffin Region of Nunavut and Northern Quebec (Nunavik) received 37% and 24% of the annual subsidy amount, nearly two-thirds of the program's subsidy budget. Nunavut alone received more than half of the annual subsidy amount, for a total of 57%.

Retailers with stores in northern communities received 92% of the volume of subsidized products. These locally-operating stores make the subsidy available to the largest number of community residents as possible since most people shop at the local store. In 2013-2014, about 4% of the subsidized volume was shipped to individuals ("personal orders"), 3% to commercial establishments like hotels or restaurants and 2% to social institutions such as schools and day cares.

Data by product category

This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed by product category between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, and the weight of the 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 the total subsidy transfer between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014 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.
