Canadian Food Strategy

At the second annual Canadian Food Summit, held in Toronto on April 9-10, Dr. Michael Bloom, Vice-President at The Conference Board of Canada, shared a draft Canadian Food Strategy to stimulate change in our nation’s food system. The strategy is being developed as a comprehensive, evidence-based and action-oriented framework.

The five key elements of the Canadian Food Strategy are:

  1. Industry prosperity
  2. Healthy food programs, in partnership with media, to encourage people to  choose foods to maintain a healthy weight
  3. Food safety
  4. Household food security
  5. Environmental sustainability

The next draft of the Canadian Food Strategy is expected to be ready soon for an online consultation phase. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to shape the nation’s first ever food strategy!
