Per capita meat consumption in Canada by type 1998-2018

Per capita meat consumption in Canada from 1998 to 2018, by type (in pounds)

by Emma Bedford, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Per capita meat consumption in Canada by type 1998-2018 Chicken was the most consumed meat in Canada in 2018. Canadians were consuming on average 76.32 pounds of the white meat per capita in this year. Chicken consumption has risen by almost 20 pounds per capita since 1999. Beef and pork consumption, on the other hand, have decreased in recent years, amounting to 39.82 and 36.31 pounds per capita respectively in 2018.
Canadian chicken market

The volume of chicken produced in recent years reflects Canadians growing love of the meat. Production reached an all-time high in 2018, with around 1.3 million metric tons of chicken produced in Canada. Whilst production and consumption have increased, average annual household expenditure on chicken has fluctuated. Spending hit a high of 266 Canadian dollars per household in 2015 and has since decreased to 230 dollars. This suggests that whilst Canadians are eating more chicken, they are purchasing cheaper cuts or varieties. Saskatchewan is the province where consumers are most likely to actively include chicken and poultry in their diet, whilst those in Quebec are most likely to avoid white meat.
