Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has announced the launch of consultations to help guide the development of a Sustainable Agriculture Strategy (SAS). A Strategy will provide an integrated and coordinated approach to address agri-environmental issues in the sector. By identifying goals and actions, Canada's agriculture sector will be better equipped to recover quickly from extreme events, thrive in a changing climate, and ensure a steady food supply.
The Government of Canada is consulting with stakeholders and partners across the country to develop a SAS that will build on work already being done to improve the sector's environmental performance through a coordinated vision.
We look forward to hearing from producers, industry, non-government organizations, Indigenous communities, the public and more on how we can work together to improve environmental outcomes in the sector and achieve the vision of Canada as a world leader in sustainable agriculture and agri-food production.

As part of consultations on a Sustainable Agriculture Sector, a Sustainable Agriculture Strategy: Discussion Document is now available for comment until March 31, 2023. This document examines the current state of agriculture and environment in Canada and provides a starting point for discussions on how a SAS may further advance environmental goals in Canada's agriculture sector.
Feedback collected during consultations will help shape a plan and develop shared outcomes that will benefit producers, the agriculture industry, and Canadians through supporting the long-term vitality of the sector, enhanced resilience in the face of extreme weather, and connections to global markets.
