Webinar--Household Food Insecurity in Canada, An Update from the PROOF Research Program

January 16, 2014

13:00-14:00 p.m.

Join us for this webinar on what a national household survey data can reveal and priority actions to take after.

Household food insecurity, defined as inadequate or insecure access to food due to financial constraints, affected 4 million Canadians in 2012. The consistent monitoring of food insecurity through the Canadian Community Health Survey since 2005 has furnished a wealth of data about the extent and nature of this problem.  In this webinar, we will examine socio-demographic, temporal, and geographic patterns of household food insecurity in Canada, with a particular focus on local and regional variation. We will also share results of a social network analysis of food insecurity policy actors across the country. This will set the foundation for a conversation on what national household survey data can reveal about the roots of this problem and the priorities for action now.
Presenters:  Valerie Tarasuk and Catherine Mah
