WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON NOW
CAPI has been examining the effect of various countries' domestic agricultural support systems on the competitiveness of Canadian farmers and food manufacturers and the returns available to them.
Subsidies in many countries encourage production increases that result in considerable surpluses and lower prices, according to a new CAPI study. Those productions increase fuel unsustainable production practices and the misallocation of natural resources.
Producing more food without destroying ecosystems is a global challenge, but it is also national opportunity for Canada's agri-food sector. Natural capital can be a competitive advantage, if valued and managed properly.
