Food is foundational to ensuring resilient and sustainable communities. Northerners are intensely aware of this and are deploying innovative techniques and local knowledge to diversify the sector and support food security and food sovereignty within their regions. As the federal body focused on economic development in the territories, the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency is funding community-led northern and Indigenous food projects through its Northern Food Innovation Challenge.

Join us to explore the impact of these strategic investments on local food systems, discover the role of innovative food initiatives in creating resilient communities, and gain understanding of how the complexities and opportunities of northern solutions may have potential for global impact.
