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, 2016 and March 31, 2017 was applied to specific product categories.

The chart is based on data in the table above.

†Quebec North Shore communities are eligible for a subsidy from Nutrition North Canada during the months when there is no marine service to these communities (generally from January to March).
Note 1: The new communities added to the program with the full subsidy in October 2016 were not included in this table as only six months of data were available, which would have skewed the per capita annual data.
Note 2: Numbers may not add up due to rounding.

Data per retailer or supplier

This table shows the amount of subsidy that was distributed and the product quantities that were subsidized between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017, by registered retailer and supplier.  Retailers and suppliers are listed in descending order based on the subsidy amount; the recipient that received the highest amount of subsidy is listed first, followed by the community that received the second highest amount of subsidy, and so on. Numbers in the table are preliminary. Values are subject to change.
