FSC’s AGM (Free - FSC Members only)
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • Election of the new Board of Directors and more (Read AGM documents)
  • Coming on the heels of our first national election campaign, Eat Think Vote, people from across the country will reflect on what we accomplished and what we learned.

Next Steps for Food Policy in Canada (Open to non-members)
12:30 to 5:00 p.m.

The outcome of the upcoming federal election has created new directions and opportunities to work towards policy change for more just, sustainable food systems. Some of these include: the upcoming negotiations of Growing Forward Three; the ongoing review of evidence for Canada’s Food Guide; the next federal budget; exploring the potential for a National Food Policy Council; and our upcoming Assembly in 2016.

Join us for a stimulating conversation with food system leaders from across Canada to explore next steps for food policy and advocacy. We will kick off the conversation with brief presentations on the post election landscape (Diana Bronson, Executive Director of Food Secure Canada) and opportunities for policy and food system change (Dr. Rod MacRae, York University). How should we leverage opportunities to advance FSC’s four election campaign planks (food insecurity in the north, basic income, school food and new farmers) and a national food policy for Canada?

Come and contribute your ideas about how the food movement can work more strategically together to make our food system more healthy, sustainable and just.
