How frequently Canadians drink alcohol by province 2018 As of July 2018, Quebec is the province where Canadians consume alcohol most frequently – some 57 percent of survey respondents stated that they drink alcohol at least once a week. In comparison, 28 percent of respondents, less than half of those in Quebec, claimed that they drank alcohol at least once a week in Atlantic Canada.
Other factors impacting alcohol consumption

It is clear from the given statistic that alcohol consumption frequency varies quite widely between provinces. The same survey compared Canadians’ drinking habits based on their political party, income and education level. The main takeaways from the survey were that Liberal voters, high earners and/or university graduates were more likely to consume alcohol more often.

Provincial per capita consumption

Despite Quebecois claiming to drink alcohol most frequently out of all the provinces, consumers in the Northwest Territories bought the most alcohol in the 2017/18 fiscal year - Canadians spent, on average, 1,494.4 Canadian dollars per capita on alcoholic beverages there in that year. Comparatively, consumers in Quebec spent 780.2 Canadian dollars per capita on alcohol.
