12TH ANNUAL CANADIAN AGRI-FOOD POLICY VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
Dates: January 18-20, 2022
Location: Virtual, through Zoom
Formats: Workshop; Interview, Debate, Presentation, Panel Discussion
Theme: Food Security, and Indigenous and Northern Economic Development: Policies and Future Directions
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.
