Food System Trends and Policy in Canada Today

Code:
FOOD 1081

The production, processing and consumption of food are at the core of many local and global issues. World hunger, malnutrition, genetically modified seeds, access to markets for new farmers and human nutrition are just a few of the issues that are prevalent in today’s society. Policies have a major impact on all of the dimensions of these issues. Although policies have attempted to address various food issues, there is a broad consensus that food policy lacks effectiveness on several fronts. This course will introduce you to the various elements, concepts and key issues in the field of Food Policy. It will help you understand the complexity of formulating and implementing policies as well as gain the practical skills to critically analyze food policies and programs. This will be accomplished by examining various Canadian and international food policies and programs.
