Country Food Subsidy Rates as of April 1, 2021

A subsidy is available for commercially-produced country foods shipped by air to eligible communities. There are currently three country food processing facilities that meet the program's requirements: Kitikmeot Foods in Cambridge Bay, NU, Kivalliq Arctic Foods Limited in Rankin Inlet, NU and Pangnirtung Fisheries Limited in Pangnirtung, NU.

The table below sets out the subsidy rates applicable for each eligible community based on the location of the processing facility (i.e. point of origin). These rates are based on shipping rates posted by air carriers for existing connections from the three points of origin.

AANDC is working with stakeholders and the Nutrition Canada North Advisory Board to further develop options to support access to country food for Northerners.
