From Food Mail to Nutrition North Canada: Reconsidering federal food subsidy programs for northern Ontario
Keywords:Nutrition North Canada, food subsidy programs, northern Canada, remote
This paper is a critique of the report released on 25 November 2014 by the Auditor General of Canada (AG), Michael Ferguson, on Nutrition North Canada (NNC), a subsidy program designed to lower the cost of “perishable nutritious food” in northern communities. We argue that the situation is far more complicated than the AG’s report allows and suggest that looking at the challenges faced by the provincial Norths will show the real deficits of NNC.
