In 2011, the Household Food Security Survey Module was administered in all provinces and territories as a component of Statistics Canada’s annual Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS). Examining the results of this survey provides an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the prevalence, distribution and relative severity of household food insecurity across the country. The Annual Report on Household Food Insecurity is designed to provide a tool, using Statistics Canada data, to monitor trends and identify priorities for interventions to address this major public health issue. It builds on the extensive work of the Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion at Health Canadai in monitoring household food insecurity in Canada.
