Canada’s largest and most vibrant food gathering, FSC’s Assembly, which will be hosted November 1 - 4, 2018 in Montreal!

Resetting the Table, FSC’s 10th Assembly, will bring together Canada’s brightest food thinkers and most innovative organizations to share and develop practical solutions to national and global issues related to food - climate, equity, health and sustainability. As always, a rich program of tours, plenaries, and workshops will offer great opportunities for learning and networking.

Co-hosted the Concordia Food Coalition and Concordia University, leaders in the student food movement and campus sustainability.


About FSC's Assemblies

Food Secure Canada as a national network was born out of a conference at Ryerson University in Toronto in 2001, which gathered people and civil society organisations from every province to tackle the challenge of food security both at home and abroad. Since that first meeting, eight other Assemblies have taken place all over the country. Montreal 2018 is our 10th one.

With participants from all over the country, the Assembly is a unique opportunity to meet with hundreds of leading thinkers in the Canadian food scene including activists, policy makers, businesses, researchers and interested citizens, workers and associations.

It is a place to:

  • build new partnerships and collaborations from across the country
  • learn from colleagues and get access to cutting edge analysis
  • work together on critical national policy issues and campaigns.

The Assembly website is currently under development.

Registration and travel costs

Registration will open this Spring. Details on registration fees and bursaries will be forthcoming.

All presenters need to be registered for the Assembly and cover their costs for travel and accommodations. Please don't let these costs be a barrier to participating as for each Assembly we strive to offer as many bursaries as possible.
