Northern Ontario

Led by Charles Levkoe and Mirella Stroink, Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Ontario.


Expanding from robust community partnerships that span the vast geography of northern Ontario, the focus for future research will be on food policy with a particular emphasis on policy gaps and failures as opportunities for learning. The first priority is to conduct an environmental scan. Building from this work, there will be an emphasis on farmer education, knowledge and distribution systems and education.
