Meat consumption habits in Canada 2013-2015 This statistic shows the meat consumption habits of consumers in Canada as of December 2015. While three percent of Canadian respondents reported eating a vegetarian diet, 84 percent reported eating all meat categories, including chicken, fish, seafood and red meat.
Meat consumption in Canada - additional information

Living standards, diet, livestock production and consumer prices dictate the levels of meat consumption in a country. Although traditionally, meat is considered to be a major part of the Canadian diet, since 2007, there has been a steady decline in per capita meat consumption in Canada. It is interesting to note that Canadians are opting for healthier lifestyles by reducing their meat consumption and shifting from red meat to white meat, with increasing rates of chicken consumption in the past years. Immigration with a consequent increase in number of people whose religion restricts meat consumption, and an ageing population have contributed to this shift. Additionally, increasing awareness regarding the environmental and health consequences of high meat consumption has led a high number of young Canadians to opt for vegetarian and vegan diets. Vegans, in addition to being vegetarian, do not use other animal products and by-products, not only in terms of food products such as eggs, dairy products and honey but also lifestyle products such as leather, fur, silk, wool, cosmetics, and soaps derived from animal products. Globally, the highest numbers of people following a vegan diet live in the Asia pacific region. Increase in food prices and economic recessions have also influenced Canadian households to purchase less meat, thereby reducing the profit margins in the food industry.
