As a dietetics student at UBC, I love grocery shopping. However, I’ve noticed that I’ve been more selective about which foods to place in my basket due to a rise in my grocery bills. Like many other Canadians, I’ve found it challenging to keep up with inflation and I’ve had to be creative to keep my grocery bills within my budget.

According to the 2024 Canada’s Food Price Report, vegetables, meat and bakery items are expected to have the greatest price increases this year. On the bright side, dry goods and non-perishable goods are expected to stay the same. Dairy and fruit are expected to have smaller price increases compared to foods in vegetables, meat and bakery.
