COTA post-election meetings with federal government

canada-organicSince the election of the new government, the COTA team has been actively engaging with various departments on some of our sector’s key files.  In a welcome letter to the new Minister of Agriculture, COTA raised key priorities (such as organic equivalency arrangements, organic data collection, Safe Foods for Canadians Act) and discussed new opportunities (a transition-support program for organic farmers). COTA also met with officials at Agriculture and AgriFood Canada and Statistics Canada to coordinate and align on our key priorities. For more information, contact Marie-Eve Levert.
