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.
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.
