On Friday, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Marie-Claude Bibeau announced the membership of the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council, a central component of the Food Policy for Canada.
“Whether it’s food insecurity, food fraud, food waste, or promoting the good stories of our agricultural producers, collaboration is the key," said Bibeau. "This Advisory Council is a first-of-its kind in Canada, and reflects our vision for a sustainable food system in Canada built on an inclusive approach. Each of these members has a unique set of experiences and knowledge that will help improve the way Government programs are developed and implemented. I can’t wait for our first discussion!”
The Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council’s 23 members bring together diverse expertise and perspectives from across the food system, including the agriculture and food sector, health professionals, academics, and non-profit organizations. Members also represent Canada’s geographic and demographic diversity.
The Council will advise the Minister on current and emerging food-related issues that matter to Canadians.
The Council’s first meeting will be held virtually on March 4, 2021.Click here to see more...
