Applications are now being accepted until September 20th for membership in the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council.

The council was included as part of Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau’s announcement in June of a national food policy.

It will report to the minister and will include a diversity of members from the agriculture and food industry, health professionals, academia, non-profit organizations, and Indigenous organizations.

The ministry says the vision for the Food Policy is for all people in Canada to have access to a sufficient amount of safe, nutritious and culturally diverse food.
