Why are groceries cheaper in the US than in Canada?

I’m asking this question based on the story of Brandi Dustin who saves $300 a month by grocery shopping in the US.

While I don’t envy Dustin much as I want to support local businesses, I’m curious to know why groceries are so much cheaper in the US than in Canada.

Jay groceries have been cheaper in the USA for quite some time. Canada, with its relatively smaller population compared to the United States, relies more heavily on imported food products. While major urban centers in Canada offer lower-priced food items compared to more remote areas, even when considering currency differences, Canadian groceries tend to be pricier than their American counterparts.
