Food security and policy in Canada is intricately linked to overall national economic development. In addition, the food security and economic development issues facing Canada’s Indigenous populations and northern territories are unique in many ways compared with the rest of the country. The agrifood and policy issues range from indigenous fishing rights in Atlantic Canada, through drinking water quality and policy among First Nations and Indigenous rural communities in central Canada, to food access and economic development among remote Indigenous communities and northern territories. The 12th annual Canadian Agrifood Policy conference will explore these issues and future directions.
Since it was first held in 2011, the Annual Canadian Agri-Food Policy Conference (CAPC) has become a premier national policy outlook for the agri-food sector. Conference attendees and presenters consist of a blend of distinguished scholars and industry stakeholders with knowledge of critical issues and potential policy solutions facing the agri-food system in Canada today.
