Abstract

In an effort to think about innovative and comprehensive federal food and agricultural policies, this commentary offers some insight into Québec’s integrated agricultural policy framework. In theory, key operating principles such as the precautionary principle, multifunctionality and subsidiarity integrate health, social, rural and environmental goals and therefore might contribute to a joined up and healthier food system.
