Response to the Call for a Food Policy for Canada

Posted by admin on August 22, 2017

In May 2017, Minister of Agriculture Lawrence MacAulary announced the launch of consultations on the national food policy. Canadians are being encouraged to provide their input into what food issues matter most to them to support the development of the food policy. The Thunder Bay and Area Food Strategy Executive Committee has formed a formal response to the Call for A Food Policy for Canada, stating that equity, health, and sustainability must remain at the core of a national food policy.
