Frozen North, Food for All? Growing Food Security in Canada’s North

Remote locations present a challenge to food systems, and they are highly dependent on infrastructures, such as roads and electricity, to ensure food remains safe and accessible. Extreme winter weather puts intense demands on northern Canadian communities’ food security and accessibility.

This webinar offers a panel discussion on the topic of commercial and pilot projects that bring food production to northern Canada. The discussion will consider gaps in the regulatory framework around various innovative systems and policy alternatives to improve the business environment.

Join us to learn about issues related to Canadian northern communities that impact their food systems.
