A National Food Policy Council for Canada, Food Secure Canada

September 25, 2015

12:00 p.m.

The Toronto Food Policy Council was a ground breaking initiative established in 1991 and has since inspired similar policy councils in dozens of municipalities around the world.  A unique forum that brings different stakeholders together to work on sustainable, healthy, accessible and culturally appropriate food in their communities has great relevance at the national level.  

Join Rod MacRae, Sasha McNicoll and Keith Robinson for a discussion of a National Food Policy for Canada. What would a National Food Policy Council for Canada look like?  The webinar will provide essential background on the issue and introduce Food Secure Canada's draft federal legislation to create this forum, modelling on previous para-governmental structures such as the National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy and the International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development (Rights & Democracy).
