And it is in New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador found the lowest (72.6 percent) proportion.

In opposition, Canadian households spent less for food in 2011, or $ 7,795, which represents a decrease of 0.4 percent compared to 2010. This decrease is attributable to purchased in-store food or fall is 1.8 per cent. Expenditures have decreased especially in the case of fruits, grain products, eggs and dairy products.
