Centre for Food in Canada (CFIC)
Launched by The Conference Board of Canada, the CFIC has two purposes:
- to raise public awareness of the nature and importance of the food sector to Canada’s economy and society; and
- to create a shared vision for the future of food in Canada—articulated in a framework for a Canadian Food Strategy that will meet our country’s need for a coordinated, long-term strategy for change.
The work involves a combination of research and effective communications to stimulate public understanding of the significance of the food sector and spur the demand for collaborative action. The Centre is working closely with leaders and partners from Canada’s food sector, governments, educational institutions, and other organizations to achieve its goals.
