Over 64 municipal and regional governments across Canada are using a food systems approach to improve health, generate economic development, address environmental sustainability, and engage communities.
This approach is documented in a report entitled “Municipal Food Policy Entrepreneurs: A preliminary analysis of how Canadian cities and regional food districts are involved in food systems change.” Please follow the link to read more about this research.
The Toronto Food Policy Council has compiled the results of that initial research. Our goal is to create a complete list of initiatives across the country.
You can access this list geographically (by clicking on the map above), by category, or by tag.
If you have any feedback on this list or want to update any information listed please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We have only posted information from initiatives across the country that we were able to gather a significant amount of information about. If you would like to add your municipal food policy initiative to this list please fill out this template with as much information as possible.
