The Government of Canada has recently announced the development of a Food Policy for Canada. This policy will look to seek opportunities and tackle challenges across the entire agricultural food chain focusing on four major themes:
Increasing access to affordable food;
Improving health and food safety;
Conserving soil, water and air; and
Growing more high-quality food.
The Government of Canada is looking to the agriculture and food industry to provide valuable input to provide support in developing this new Food Policy. As world class producers, UFA urges our members to be a part of the engagement process and participate in the online consultation survey.
The online survey is the first of many engagement activities that will help inform the development of the policy. The survey’s closing date is July 27, 2017.
