INFLATION: Nearly half of Canadians report difficulty feeding their family

Sharing is Caring!

The rising cost of goods is taking its toll on Canadian households with almost half (46 per cent) of all respondents in a recent survey stating they have some difficulty covering their grocery bill.

More than one-third (37 per cent) of Canadians polled by the Angus Reid Institute said it’s been “difficult” to afford enough food to feed their household during the pandemic. Nine per cent said it’s been “very difficult”.

The poll’s findings come on the same day Statistics Canada revealed annual inflation increased at the fastest rate since 2003 in September at 4.4 per cent. Additionally, federal support programs related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including wage and rent subsidies, are set to expire on Saturday.
