OUR WORK
As an independent, non-partisan policy catalyst, CAPI brings insight, evidence and balance to emerging issues. We provide a neutral place to hold dialogues and generate perspectives among leaders across the food system.

About the Institute

The Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI) is the place for agri-food leaders to come together, share insights and advance ideas on emerging issues facing this important sector.

We offer a neutral venue. We conduct sound research. We present solutions.

Our work reflects "systems thinking." Food issues are complex and inter-connected. We bring diverse voices "to the table" — from across agri-food supply chains, governments, researchers and among adjacent sectors.

We are helping agri-food players identify their pathways to achieve success. We support "champions" to further the work and build momentum for real change.

By taking a mid- to longer-term view, we are creating a national dialogue on ways to improve the competitiveness of the agri-food sector, and their policy implications, and contribute to the well-being of Canadians.

Established as an independent, non-partisan and not-for-profit corporation in 2004 by the federal government, CAPI is guided by a diverse Board of Directors and an Advisory Committee and works extensively with partners to fulfill its mandate.
