National Food Waste Reduction Strategy for Canada – Stakeholder Discussion

April 25 @ 10:15 am - 11:15 am

Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 10:15am-11:15am (PST)

Join us on April 25, 2017 for a presentation on the Council’s National Food Waste Reduction Strategy

Food waste presents a significant problem economically, environmentally and socially. It is a challenge that faces countries around the world, including Canada. While European nations and the United States have taken leadership on the issue with changes in policy and practice, Canada is lagging behind.

The National Zero Waste Council has proposed a National Food Waste Strategy for Canada that takes the best of successful action worldwide and presents a three-pillar approach that includes recommendations for policy change, innovation in infrastructure, and behavior change.

The Council is reaching out to leaders in the public, private and community sectors who are involved with food loss and waste. The Council is seeking feedback on the National Food Waste Strategy with respect to implementation and collaboration. A deeper and more refined Strategy as a result of stakeholder feedback is expected in 2018.

Please join us for this webinar discussion.

Featuring:

Bob Long, NZWC Board Member and Chair of the Food Working Group; FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) Standing Committee on Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development; and Councillor, Township of Langley

Christina Seidel, Executive Director, Recycling Council of Alberta
