Nutrition North Canada to Benefit Nunatsiavut Consumers

A new program will oversee the subsidization of healthy foods to northern communities and benefit Nunatsiavut consumers.

Leo Doyle is a member of the Food Mail Review Team.

He says the new program is called Nutrition North Canada.

It will replace the current Food Mail Program.

The new program will cut out the middle man: Canada Post.

Doyle says that by doing so there will be more savings going directly to the consumers.

The new program will be introduced in phases.

The Department of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada hopes to see the final phase completed by April, 2011.
