The Food Counts: A Pan-Canadian Sustainable Food Systems Report Card brings together already existing measures of social, environmental, and economic well-being to help researchers, policy makers, and practitioners examine food systems at the national level. The report card uses a food sovereignty framework to reframe food within an integrated systems perspective and makes connections to a global movement focused on food as a means for collective social change. As one practical tool for reimagining Canadian food systems, the Food Counts Report Card acts as a benchmark, identifies gaps in data and where case studies can elaborate on successes and limitations, and informs policy making at all levels of government.
The Food Counts Report Card is a living document and will be updated as more data becomes available. As part of our commitment to an open and iterative process, we welcome feedback on all aspects of the Food Counts Report Card. If you have comments, questions, or would like to suggest additional data sources or indicators, please fill out the Food Counts Report Card Feedback Form.
