Webinar: Improving the accessibility of sustainably-produced foods in Canada - Key Findings of a Food Secure Canada Research Project
Interest in sustainably-produced foods has grown exponentially in recent decades. Food Secure Canada has conducted a study called, “Sustainable Consumption For All” (April 2018 - March 2019) to better understand the barriers Canadians living on low-incomes face in accessing sustainably-produced food. The study was funded by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. The project utilized key informant interviews, focus groups with people living on low-income, and a nation-wide survey. Key research findings will be presented, followed by an interactive discussion about the project. We will also explore future research questions.
