The Action Canada Fellowship is a public policy leadership program that aims to enhance young leaders’ understanding of the country and public policy choices for the future. Each cohort of Fellows examines a different policy topic which becomes the focus of their task force reports.
After a 10-month study of the future of food that started last June in Ottawa and saw the group travel to from Laird, SK to St-Alexandre, QC and many places in between, this year’s Action Canada Fellows will present their final reports and recommendations on:
- Making Informed Food Choices;
- Food Innovation in Canada’s Arctic: The case for a social enterprise cluster; and
- Permanently Impermanent: Migrant agricultural workers in Canada.
