A poll conducted by the University of Saskatchewan finds more Canadians are having to adjust their grocery habits due to rising inflation.
The survey, conducted between early September and mid-October, finds almost 20 percent of Canadians have reduced their meal portions, or skipped meals altogether, to cope with rising food prices.
More than 30 percent admit they’re eating less-healthy food because it’s cheaper.
A majority of respondents say they’re now coupon-clipping, or actively seeking out sales, to reduce their grocery budgets.
Statistics Canada says food prices were up 11.4 percent for the ending in September.
