Conference Board of Canada releases food report card, gives Nunavut a D for food security
May 19, 2017
Food insecurity in Nunavut “needs remedial action,” say the authors of a new report who call for a national food policy.
The Conference Board of Canada released its 2016 food report card on provincial performance, which looks at industry prosperity, healthy food and diets, food safety, household food security and environmental sustainability.
The group defined food insecurity in terms of affordability, availability and utilization, as the United Nations does, said report co-author Jean-Charles Le Vallée, associate director of the board’s Centre for Food in Canada.
