Food insecurity went up during year 1 of Nutrition North: StatsCan

CBC NEWS: The number of households that couldn't afford a healthy diet in the North increased during the first year of the Nutrition North program, according to a report on Canadian food insecurity released yesterday by Statistics Canada. 

The report focused on the most recent food security data available, for the year 2011/2012. That was the same year the Nutrition North program, which aimed to address high food prices in Canada's territories by paying a shipping subsidy directly to retailers, was introduced.
