Canada’s food movement will gather in Halifax this year for Food Secure Canada’s biennial feast of food and ideas. Over three days, people from many different walks of life who are passionate about building healthy, sustainable food systems where no-one is hungry will gather to share, stratagize and build a better future for food in Canada.

We invite you to submit a workshop or presentation and encourage you to share this Call for Proposals with others. With an anticipated attendance of over 350 people from across Canada, the event offers an exceptional opportunity to share experiences, deepen dialogue, gain access to cutting edge research and ideas, and sharpen our skills in order to advance our collective work. Submissions are welcome on any area related to food.   For more information, and to submit a proposal visit

Food Secure Canada’s National Assembly in Halifax, NS promises to bridge food movements on land and sea, to deepen our thinking on food justice and to advance our work on the People’s Food Policy.   The theme – Waves of Change: Sustainable Food for All – reflects the need to place questions of long-term sustainability at the centre of how we think about, produce, and eat our food. It also reflects the growing strength and complexity of the food movement and its commitment to creative and lasting solutions to the problems of hunger, sustainable livelihoods in the food business, and the protection of our health and the environment. Waves symbolize the momentum generated when many drops of water come together as a collective power, as well as highlighting the critical role of water and water-based food. Each of us has an important role to play in making waves to build the kind of food system we would like to see.  We look forward to receiving your workshop/presentation proposal.
