Food Law and Policy in Canada

Availability: In Stock

Food Law and Policy in Canada, the first of its kind in the Canadian context, includes chapters from leading experts in the various sub-fields of food law and policy in Canada. While food law has not yet crystallized into a systematic field of study in Canada, rapid unification of this field has recently occurred in the USA, the UK, and the EU, among other jurisdictions. What can we learn from them? What is unique about Canadian physical, cultural, and social realities that require different approaches to the study of food law and policy in Canada? What is the most effective path to developing coherent and effective food laws that not only serve Canada, but also provide an inspirational model for other countries and enhance international collaboration on creating sustainable and just food systems?

The book has two parts. Part I provides a broad overview, with detailed appendices, of the essential laws, regulations, and policies relevant to food law and policy in Canada. Part II offers critical perspectives on issues like emerging food technologies, animal rights, and food and gender, among others. As such, this book provides the basics for beginners, and also advanced critical, and innovative thinking on emerging issues in this burgeoning field of law.
