Nutrition North Canada
COVID-19: Program enhancements
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, and to support food security in isolated communities, enhancements have been made to the Nutrition North Canada subsidy program to give Northerners in these communities better access and more savings on nutritious foods and essential items.
We have increased subsidy rates and expanded the list of food and essential items subsidized when shipped by air to all 116 Nutrition North Canada eligible communities.
Nutrition North Canada provides a Government of Canada subsidy to help make nutritious food and some essential non-perishable items more affordable and accessible.
