HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA
THU 3 NOV AND FRI 4 NOV 2016
On November 3-4, 2016, the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University and Food Lawyers of Canada brought together leaders from across this field at a two-day national conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia to explore law’s changing role in Canadian food systems and to help chart the future of food law and policy in Canada.
Thank you to all of our phenomenal presenters and attendees for making this inaugural food law and policy conference such a success.
THE FIRST CONFERENCE OF ITS KIND IN CANADA
This event is the first national food law conference of its kind in Canada and it comes at a critical juncture for Canada's food systems—one at which Canadians are confronting both pervasive challenges and a growing set of public and political commitments to respond.
EXPLORE DEVELOPMENTS OF INTER/NATIONAL SCOPE
The world is changing and food law and policy is evolving alongside it. New technology, trade agreements, consumer demands, and industry goals will change relationships between levels of government and private actors, domestic and international stakeholders and what it means to produce, procure, and plate.
HEAR LEADING THINKERS AND DECISION-MAKERS
The conference featured presenters from six provinces, three countries, fifteen law firms, and twenty universities. Experts from a range of disciplinary perspectives offered their insights from practice, government, the non-profit sector and academia.
