Everyone at the Table

On February 19, 2021, the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, announced the membership of the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council, a central component of the Food Policy for Canada. 

Recognizing that greater collaboration is essential to make meaningful progress on complex and systemic food issues, the Government of Canada created the Canadian Food Policy Advisory Council as a central piece of the Food Policy for Canada.

This multi-disciplinary group has the expertise and lived experience to bring diverse social, environmental, health and economic perspectives to the table to help address food system challenges and opportunities of today and into the future.

We'd like to extend our congratulations to Evan Fraser, Director of Arrell Food Institute and a professor of Geography, Environment and Geomatics at the University of Guelph, who has been named co-chair of the Council.
