National Food Policy Sessions


There were more than 40,000 responses to an on-line survey about a national food policy.

The survey closed August 31st.

Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Lawrence MacAulay is now travelling the country participating in regional engagement sessions. The most recent one was in the Northwest Territories and earlier ones were held in Quebec and PEI.

There is one coming up at the University Guelph Tuesday at 10:00am.

The four main points of the food policy:

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