Resetting the Table - FSC's 10th Assembly

Canada’s largest and most vibrant food gathering, Resetting the Table, will be hosted this year 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.

Assembly focus areas will include: agroecology; building resilient local food economies (infrastructure, hubs, institutional procurement); climate change; farm renewal; food policy: national, provincial, municipal; food security, justice, equity; food waste; healthy eating strategies and food environments; healthy school food; measuring impact; Northern and Indigenous food sovereignty; food as a feminist issue and more.

This event is co-hosted by the Concordia Food Coalition and Concordia University, leaders in the student food movement and in campus sustainability.

Early bird registration is open and preliminary program is available!

FSC's National 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, 8 other Assemblies have taken place all over the country. Montreal 2018 will be our tenth edition.

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.
