Towards a Sustainable Recovery and Resilience of the Montreal Food System

In collaboration with Conseil Système alimentaire montréalais, Project impact collectif de Centraide du Grand Montréal and La Fondation du Grand Montréal.

The pandemic has put a lot of pressure on our food system. When economic recovery begins, the City of Montreal will need to (re)build a food system based on public health needs, that also supports economic and ecological resilience. This project enabled Conseil SAM to conduct an analysis during the COVID-19 crisis to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the city’s local food system; set priorities for economic recovery, and establish a 10-year roadmap to strengthen the resilience and sustainability of a local food network for Montreal.
