Barriers to Local Food ProductionBarriers to Local Food Production, Distribution, and Sale in the Greenbelt
$15,000 - October 11, 2007

The Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy (CIELAP) produced a report on the legal, regulatory and policy barriers that constrain the production, distribution, and sale of local food in the Greenbelt. Approximately half of Ontario’s fruit farms and a fifth of its vegetable farms are located in the Greenbelt. Identifying barriers will inspire a drive towards recognizing solutions, which will benefit Ontario’s farmers significantly. It is a useful resource for educators, students and the general public on food security ad local agriculture.
