The goal of this symposium and methodological workshop is to bring together researchers, students and practitioners to discuss completed and on-going studies along with the distinct strengths and challenges of Canadian food environments research, and to strategize for how to move this research forward in the future.
This is particularly important now in this emerging field, as Canadian food environments researchers are finding that data from the US, and to a lesser degree, the UK, are not always relevant to the Canadian context. Many researchers have voiced the need for more Canadian-specific discussions of food environments. This symposium and workshop will provide the time and place for these discussions to happen, leading to new collaborations and initiatives.
