Every four years, citizens throughout Ontario elect new representatives for mayor, councillor, reeve, and school board trustee positions to make important decisions for their municipality. These representatives play a key role in shaping your regional food system. It’s important that they understand how powerful food and farming policies and programs can be.
Food and Farming can help grow the regional economy, improve health outcomes, preserve and steward the regional environment, improve education outcomes for children and youth, and build equitable and inclusive communities.
Explore the municipalities (counties, regions, and single-tier) and districts below where Local Food Champions are taking a lead in asking local candidates, “What will you do to support food and farming?” using customized Vote ON Food & Farming surveys that also share how municipal governments are strategic innovators in food systems’ work. Candidate survey responses are linked to from their municipality’s page and published on a rolling basis.
