Canadians are being encouraged to provide their views on what should be included in “A Food Policy for Canada.”

This new food policy from the Government of Canada will help set a long-term vision for the health, environmental, social and economic goals related to food.

The federal government is consulting Canadians on the four following areas:  

  1. Increasing access to affordable food
  2. Improving health and food safety
  3. Conserving our soil, water, and air
  4. Growing more high-quality food

The Importance of Collaboration

There are a number of individuals involved in Canada’s food system, including processors, producers, retailers, consumers, academia, non-government organizations and all orders of government. Collaboration among these individuals is key to ensuring the success of developing and implementing this food policy.
