Dreaming Forward: Agriculture & Food Systems

Please join Green Agriculture Critic, District 5 MLA Michele Beaton, for the next instalment of our Dreaming Forward project to build a vision of the post-COVID future for PEI that we want to create!

The pandemic has shone a light on the vulnerabilities of many of our systems, not least our agriculture and food systems. Islanders have already begun feeling the consequences of our reliance on imported food, on volatile and not-very-diverse export markets, and the role of imported labour in the food sector. We have seen increasing food insecurity as low-income Islanders experienced disruptions in income and services. PEI now has the urgency and opportunity to reimagine our agriculture and food systems as part of a resilient, sustainable and just future for our province.
