Effective Lobbying for Food System Transformation, Food Secure Canada

February 5, 2018

1:00-2:00 p.m. EST

2017 was a busy year for food policy, and 2018 is shaping up to be even bigger! From the much anticipated A Food Policy for Canada, to the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, and Canada’s Food Guide and Healthy Eating Strategy, there will be multiple important opportunities to advocate for policies that create a more just, healthy and sustainable food system.  

With all of these upcoming policies on the table, how can we best engage with the government and Members of Parliament to ensure our voices are heard? Join Food Secure Canada for a webinar featuring a current and former MP as they share their tips for effective lobbying.
