Because Canadians deserve practical policies that grow our rural economies, produce nutritious local food and protect our land.
Canada is without a comprehensive food policy—lagging behind other industrial countries in the OECD, like England and Australia.
Now the United Nations has raised serious concerns about food security in Aboriginal communities and a lack of a coordinated food strategy in Canada.
That’s why Canada’s New Democrats are calling on the Government of Canada to implement a pan-Canadian Food Strategy to:
- support farmers
- improve access to healthy food
- market Canadian food at home and abroad.
