Feeding Canada

The Food Policy for Canada is a roadmap for a healthier and more sustainable food system in Canada – one that builds on the Government’s ambitious agenda to support the growth of Canada’s farmers and food businesses, as well as key federal initiatives like the Heathy Eating Strategy, Canada’s Food Guide, and the Poverty Reduction Strategy, as well as work on food fraud, food labelling, and food loss and waste, among others.

Indigenous peoples in Canada

Indigenous peoples in Canada, also known as Aboriginal Canadians are the indigenous peoples within the boundaries of Canada. They comprise the First Nations, Inuit and Métis, or by the initialism FNIM, Although “Indian” is a term still commonly used in legal documents, the descriptors “Indian” and “Eskimo” have somewhat fallen into disuse in Canada and some consider them to be pejorative. Similarly, “Aboriginal” as a collective noun is a specific term of art used in some legal documents, including the Constitution Act, 1982, though in some circles that word is also falling into disfavour. (Wikipedia).

Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) works collaboratively with partners to improve access to high quality services for First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Our vision is to support and empower Indigenous peoples to independently deliver services and address the socio-economic conditions in their communities.

Agri/Horti Culture

The main regions of Canada are the mountainous west coast, flat central prairies, eastern forested plains, and frozen north. Almost every region in Canada is home to an abundance of forests, rivers, and lakes. Canadian weather is harsh and cold during the long winter months but is more varied during other seasons.

Canada is one of the largest agricultural producers and exporters in the world. A wide range of agriculture is practiced in Canada, from sprawling wheat fields of the prairies to summer produce of the Okanagan valley.
