An Inquiry into the allocation of import quotas by Canadian International Trade Tribunal( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past 20 years, the government has implemented supply management schemes for many agricultural products, beginning with certain dairy products in the late 1960s and ending, in 1988, with production controls on broiler hatching eggs and chicks. Protection of the Canadian market from import competition is critical to the operation of such regimes"--Introduction

Community engagement in developing prospects for a system of domestic fair trade for food products (a PEI pilot) : research report( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of this project is to engage various food-interest sectors to establish collaborative processes to examine the capacity of a Domestic Fair Trade system to open new marketing opportunities for food products. This project will develop a model that can be replicated in other parts of Canada. The project aims to involve major players across Canada and anticipates that the content, processes, and actions of this project will have the capacity to move the sector forward on strategies for a Domestic Fair Trade system. It will enhance traditional marketing practices because it responds to growing consumer demands for forms of production and distribution that are consumer- and ecofriendly and respectful of farmers right to a livable income

Losing our grip : how a corporate farmland buy-up, rising farm debt, and agribusiness financing of inputs threaten family farms and food sovereignty (or, serfdom 2.0) : a report( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The land on which our food is grown is, to a significant extent, owned by local citizens and the families who work that land. This family farm model is widely supported--by farmers and non-farmers alike. But this model is under serious threat of extinction. And the issue goes beyond mere land ownership: the core issue is one of autonomy and control--ensuring that the men and women who produce our food have stable, resilient bases from which to make good, long-term decisions for their farms and for our food systems. This stability and long-term thinking can lead to superior environmental outcomes, more prosperous communities, and the inter-generational transfer crucial to our family-farm model. In working to ensure autonomy and control, the aim is not farmer "independence," but rather healthy interdependence--the farmer as an integral part of his or her family, community, region, and nation. Our farmers are stewards who need to be free to react to the needs of their soils, animals, families, and neighbours as much as to the dictates of markets, bankers, or agribusiness. If corporations or wealthy investors take control of our land and farms, our food systems and ecosystems will be seriously damaged
The farm crisis & corporate profits( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The farm income crisis has reached excruciating intensity. For Canadian farm families and their net incomes, 2004 was the second-worst year in history. But for agribusiness, 2004 was the best year in history. Is there a link? This report uses 2004 as a case study and takes a detailed look at the profitability of the dominant agribusiness corporations. This report follows the money
GM crops : not needed on the Island( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past decade, corporate and government managers have spent millions trying to convince farmers and other citizens of the benefits of genetically-modified (GM) crops. But this huge public relations effort has failed to obscure the truth: GM crops do not deliver the promised benefits; they create numerous problems, costs, and risks; and Canadian consumers and foreign customers alike do not want these crops
