Is your food "All Canadian" or just "Made in Canada?"

Consumers make decisions on where their baked goods and snacks come from: The Government of Canada wants to know how Canadians feel about labels that clarify its Canadian content.
Consumers use labels on food products to determine whether the foods they buy come from Canada, including the Canadian ingredients in a product and/or if it was manufactured in Canada.
This is why the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced that the Government of Canada is launching a public consultation today on the labelling guidelines for "Product of Canada" and "Made in Canada." Canadians want information about the Canadian content of their food so that they can make purchasing decisions that match their personal preference.
The changes proposed to the labeling guidelines seek to improve upon the information available to consumers to identify Canadian food products and make informed purchasing decisions. They are also based on the recommendations following a recent survey of Canada's food industry, led by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
The Government of Canada's online public consultation seeks to gauge Canadians' support for the proposed changes. Consumers are encouraged to provide their comments by June 23, 2019.
