KRG Food and Other Essentials Program: 5% Subsidy Reduction on July 1st

One year ago, the Kativik Regional Government (KRG) updated their list of items covered under the Food and Other Essentials Program to include a broader selection of products and brands.

A recent program review by KRG has shown that this increased item list needs to be adjusted to fit the program budget.

To avoid removing items from the program, on July 1 KRG will reduce the subsidy rate on all categories of food, clothing and other essentials by 5%. The annual Christmas turkey and ham special will remain at 50% off.
