BC Food Systems Network (BCFSN), a project on Tides Canada‘s Shared Platform, works to create healthy, just and sustainable food systems in British Columbia by strengthening connections, nurturing capacity, and supporting joined-up food policy at all levels. BCFSN works in partnership with farmers and ranchers, fishers, First Nations, and people in communities working to rebuild their food systems from the ground up. BCFSN works to undertake awareness building and education, and to develop balanced policy proposals that adhere to sustainability principles and reflect the needs and interests of a wide range of people, communities and ecosystems.
