We would like to hear from you: Please discuss your views and experience as it relates to food. This will be used to inform the development of “A Food Policy for Canada”.

This policy will set a long-term vision for the health, environmental, social, and economic goals related to food, including identifying actions we can take in the short-term. It can be a means to address issues related to the production, processing, distribution, and consumption of food.
The Government of Canada is consulting Canadians on four closely connected themes:
increasing access to affordable food;
improving health and food safety;
conserving our soil, water, and air; and,
growing more high-quality food.
Here are a few questions to consider:
How do you think the federal government could help increase access to affordable, nutritious and safe food?
What health and food safety issues concern you the most when it comes to the food you eat?
What concerns, if any, do you have about the environmental impact of the production of food, including farming, fishing aquaculture and food processing?
When it comes to growing more high-quality food in Canada, what initiatives do you think would help?
