Propagating the Food Movement: Provincial Networks and Social Mobilization in Canada

This 2012 report is part of a study that explores the structure and constitution of networks of food initiatives in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia, working in partnership with four provincial network organizations. The main purpose of this study has been to enhance our understanding of how organizations in Canada are mobilizing around food-related issues. In particular, the research explores the role that food networks, rather than individual initiatives, play in developing resistance to the corporate, industrial food system. This research also seeks to support and strengthen the activities of each provincial network by providing useful information about how they work.
