Canada is not alone in charging diapers and other supplies above the Canadian dollar.
But it is among the highest, and most frequently quoted, in the world, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S.-based International Labour Organization.
The International Labor Organization’s report, which analyzed data from more than 4,500 labor market organizations in 50 countries, shows diapers, sanitary napkins, sanitizing wipes and other sanitary products cost an average of 7.5 Canadian dollars (about $7.35) per 100 grams, compared with a price of 7 Canadian dollars for a similar product in the United States, the report said.
The U.K., the U tok-i-kin, Denmark, Germany and Sweden all had prices of more than 10 Canadian dollars per 100 g.
Canada’s cost of diapers was among the lowest in the report, at 4.8 Canadian dollars a 100 g compared with the U, U.k., Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
The report said the Canadian price of diapers, including diapers for babies and toddlers, was not a good indicator of the cost of supplies.
Canadian manufacturers, which have long had to import diapers from abroad, have increasingly relied on imports of sanitary supplies.
The government, which has also invested heavily in health and nutrition programs, has been encouraging the use of sanitising wipes and diapers.
Canadian retailers have also been selling more sanitary pads, which are made with sanitary wipes.
The prices of the products vary widely.
Some sanitary wipe products have a cost of $5.50 (about €4.15), while sanitary pad pads are priced at $6 (about £4.35).
Canadian diapers, which can be bought in the mail or online, are available for purchase in the grocery store or on the Internet.
“These prices are not the prices of a sanitary product, they are the prices that retailers pay for these sanitary items,” said Julie Dutras, a spokeswoman for the U of T’s School of Public Health.
“We know the supply chain and the suppliers, so it is very clear that there is a price in diapers.”
The U of S also said it had been making a concerted effort to increase its sales of sanitizer wipes.
“This is an area where we are looking at all of our suppliers, our suppliers’ supply chains, our supply chains’ capacity, and trying to see what we can do to make the supply chains as efficient as possible,” said the university’s Dr. Rana Dua.
The Canadian price was slightly higher than the United Kingdom, where it was about 7.7 Canadian dollars, the U k tok, where prices were 6.4 Canadian dollars and the Danish, where they were 4.9 Canadian dollars.
Prices in the U s, where sanitisation wipes and sanitary towels are available, were not quoted.
“They’re more expensive than the U,” said Dutres.
“But the price is still low enough that we can afford them.”
The price of the U .k. sanitary toilet was not quoted in the ILAO report.
It is not clear why prices are so high in Canada.
“Some suppliers in Canada say the cost is a little higher than what they charge in the EU,” said Dr. Stephen Breen, director of the IMAW.
“In this case, it is not an apples-to-apples comparison.”
The ILAU’s report did not address other costs such as transportation costs, which some have pointed to as a reason for the higher prices in Canada, as well as labor costs such to pay for diapers, wipes and pad pads.
“Many countries, including the U S, have been increasing their use of diapers to increase the efficiency of the supply process, but these costs have not been brought down to where they can be considered a net benefit,” said Breen.
“There is still some scope for improvements, particularly in the use and price of sanitized products.”
The report was compiled by an international panel of academics and health researchers who used a wide range of sources.
The panel, which includes academics at the University of Oxford, Imperial College London, the University the University at Albany and the University College London was made up of representatives from the International Labor Organisation, the World Health Organization, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the United Nations Children’s Fund and the World Bank.
It also included researchers from the University Health Network and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
