For the 2nd annual Canadian Food Law and Policy Conference we take stock of our food law and policy schemes – from the federal level through the provincial and territorial down to the municipal – and strategize ways to improve them. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to assess the ways our food laws, policies and regulatory tools are succeeding in building just, equitable, vibrant, innovative, resilient and sustainable food systems, while also documenting how they contribute to hunger, malnutrition, social exclusion, contamination, exploitation and environmental degradation.
From November 2-4, 2017, we will bring together thought leaders and stakeholders for a three-day national conference at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law to help chart the future of food law and policy in Canada.
Practitioners, scholars, policymakers, adjudicators, activists, students and other thought leaders are invited to submit individual- presentation or group-panel proposals of no more than 300 words on any topic related to the conference theme by June 9, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
