The McConnell Foundation commissioned Food Secure Canada to conduct a pan-Canadian scan and create an inventory of existing health, agriculture and procurement policies that guide food in health care settings in order to better identify opportunities for policy innovation that can help shift hospitals and other care centres toward more healthy, delicious, local, sustainable and cultural food. This report aims to highlight policy gaps and opportunities before us.

Year: 2018
On 25–26 October 2017, The Gordon Foundation convened their first Northern Policy Hackathon (NPH) in Nain, Nunatsiavut. The NPH brought together northerners from across the three territories and Inuit Nunangat, to develop innovative policy recommendations on country/traditional food. Participants were from a wide array of backgrounds, including hunters, elders, nutritionists, as well as representatives from government, and the not-profit sector. These are the recommendations from that event.
