Nunavut Food Security Strategy
Acting on a pledge made in The Makimaniq Plan: A Shared Approach to Poverty Reduction (November, 2011), government departments, Inuit organizations, and community groups formed the Nunavut Food Security Coalition.
The coalition held a symposium in Iqaluit, January 22 to 24, 2013, to focus on programs, policies, and initiatives that are most likely to impact on the food security of Nunavummiut.
The areas covered include country and market food access, local food production, community initiatives, life skills, and policies and legislation.
The coalition is developing a food security strategy for Nunavut.
