Most Canadians fear having trouble feeding their families

(MENAFN) According to a recent survey, more than half of individuals in Canada now worry that they won't be able to provide for their family with food due to historically high inflation and a probable recession.

According to an Ipsos survey conducted last month for Global News and released on Wednesday, 53 percent of Canadians worry about whether they are going to be able to afford food, an increase of nine percentage points from only one month earlier. With 86 percent of respondents claiming they are concerned about a recession hitting Canada within the next year, up from 83 percent in October, economic anxiety is also on the rise.

Sean Simpson, senior vice president of Ipsos Public Affairs, claimed that “we’re seeing quite remarkable and significant changes in such a short period of time.” Noting that “Canadians clearly have heightened anxieties over the potential for a recession, over interest rates, over high inflation, and as a result, we’re seeing dramatic changes.”
