The federal government has extended the deadline for the survey on “A Food Policy for Canada.” The online survey and comment period was originally slated to end on July 27, but has been extended to August 31.

According to a statement from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, a strong response from across Canada prompted Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister, Lawrence MacAulay to encourage more Canadians to have their say.

Since the survey was launched on May 29, more than 22,000 Canadians have already completed the online survey.

“A Food Policy for Canada” will help address food issues related to:

  • Increasing access to affordable food;
  • Improving health and food safety;
  • Conserving our soil, water and air;
  • Growing more high-quality food

Community Engagement

The Government of Canada is also encouraging community leaders and organizations to discuss food policy in their own regions. A toolkit is available online to help organizers lead discussions and gather feedback on issues relating to food policy.
