An online survey has been created and is now online at www.canada.ca/food-policy.
Canadians are asked to share their views on four major themes:
- increasing access to affordable food;
- improving health and food safety;
- conserving our soil, water, and air; and
- growing more high-quality food.
A Food Policy for Canada is a new step in the government’s mandate to taking a collaborative and broad-based approach to addressing food-related issues in Canada. This online consultation is the first step being taken in order to engage Canadians, and encourage them to have their say about how government can help address those opportunities and challenges that exist in our food system.
