Household Food Insecurity in Canada, 2015-16
Graphic Series Preview

These results indicate the extent of food insecurity in 2015-2016 in the provinces and territories that elected to measure food insecurity then. In these results, we have corrected a Statistics Canada coding error that impacted the results in our earlier release of data from the 2015-2016 Canadian Community Health Survey.

In 2015 and 2016, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Yukon chose not to monitor food insecurity. The next national estimate will be available in the 2017-2018 cycle of the CCHS.
