Taking Stock: The State of Food Law and Policy in Canada

2nd Annual Canadian Food Law & Policy Conference

 

Hosted by the Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa

November 2-4, 2017

Location: Saint Paul University, 233 Main St., Ottawa, ON

 

Without a doubt, law and legal actors—including lawyers, researchers, policy makers, adjudicators, advocacy organizations and others—already occupy influential positions in the food space. But these actors frequently approach food systems from a particular discipline or perspective, such as agriculture, health and safety, regulation and innovation, poverty and social justice, or environmental planning. As a result, food law and policy in Canada has yet to develop around a clear understanding of its participants or its diverse sites of action. The second annual conference of its kind, Taking Stock: The State of Food Law and Policy in Canada provides an important opportunity to reflect on the current state of food laws and policies in Canada and strategize about how to improve them. We hope to see you there!
