Most everybody has noticed the cost of food (groceries) seems to go up and up. Now a new report says the typical Canadian family will spend up to $420 more on food next year.
Researchers at Halifax’s Dalhousie University say food prices will go up between 3 and 5% on average with meat, vegetables and seafood expected to see the highest hikes.
And if you go out to eat the increase will be reflected in the prices.
The reasons are a lower Canadian dollar and the incoming policies of President-elect Donald Trump – including the deportation of illegal, seasonal farm workers.
Where do you see the highest increases? Have you changed the way you shop?
