This new publication (Clarke et al, 2020) presents the latest data on the prevalence of reported food allergies in Canada.

Sumary: The prevalence of self-reported food allergy increased from 7.1% to 9.3% between 2010 and 2016, whereas food allergy based on history or physician diagnosis remained stable (5.9% vs 6.1%). This increase in selfreported allergy is likely attributable to increasing awareness.
