Grocery prices climbed at a slower rate in April (+9.1%) than in March (+9.7%), with the slowdown owing to smaller price increases for fresh vegetables and coffee and tea.

Fresh vegetable price rises decreased year on year in April (+8.8%) compared to March (+10.8%), mostly due to decreasing lettuce prices (-3.3%), which had declined from record high in December 2022.

Similarly, coffee and tea prices rose 6.4% year on year in April 2023, compared to 11.1% in March.

Fresh fruit prices grew by 8.3% year on year in April, following a 7.1% increase in March, slowing the decline. The rise was driven by greater growth in orange prices (+12.0%).

In six provinces, prices climbed at a quicker rate in April compared to March. Alberta saw the fastest price rise, owing in part to increasing power rates.
