image for Almost 9 out of 10 Canadians feel food prices are rising faster than income: survey

A new survey suggests that 87 per cent of Canadians feel that food prices are rising at a faster rate than their household income.

“We’ve done a survey on Canadians in terms of perceived food affordability because everyone enjoys complaining about food prices,” said Sylvain Charlebois, senior director of Dalhousie’s Agri-Food Analytics Lab.

“But the real question is whether or not Canadians actually feel that they’re falling behind relative to their revenues.”.

According to Charlebois, the number of Canadians feeling concerned about food prices relative to their income was way higher than expected.

“We were expecting perhaps to see the majority of Canadians being concerned about food affordability, but we weren’t expecting 87 per cent,” he said.

“But 87 per cent is quite substantial — it means that the vast majority of Canadians actually do feel that food prices are moving much faster than their own income.

Dalhousie’s survey found that Canadians were most worried about rising vegetable prices, with close to 7 out of 10 expressing concern. »
