An Expensive Thanksgiving For Canadians This Year

Thanksgiving dinner is going to cost Canadians more this year.

According to Statistics Canada, double-digit food inflation is pushing the cost of turkey, potatoes, bread and other holiday favourites.

Data from StatCan shows the cost of the typical turkey dinner with all the usual side dishes will run an average family of four $203.95, an increase of about 12 per cent compared to 2021.

A separate report by the Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia found more than one in five Canadians will change their Thanksgiving menus to cut costs.

That study also found potato prices are up by 22 per cent, while bread and butter increased by 13 per cent and cranberries climbed by 12 per cent.
