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.

Comparatively, consumers in Quebec spent 780.2 Canadian dollars per capita on alcohol.
