Canada’s Organic Sector Recommends a Federal Investment in Organic to Combat Climate Change


In a joint document, leaders in Canada’s Organic Sector have made a clear call for support of Organic in the next Agricultural Policy Framework (the successor to Growing Forward 2).

Among the recommendations made by the leaders of the Canada Organic Trade Association, the Organic Federation of Canada, and Canadian Organic Growers, and USC Canada are a call for “significant investments to support organic agriculture and the adoption of more sustainable farming practices to drive clean economic growth and as an essential element of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies.”

The Organic Council of Ontario strongly supports this call for investment by its national counterparts. Canada can stimulate clean and inclusive economic growth and should take immediate action on climate change through strategic investments in organic agriculture.
