Canada’s current population is approximately 35 million, and over 81% of Canadians live in urban centers with limited to no exposure to how their food is raised and grown. Less than 730,000 are farmers.
Canadian Centre for Food Integrity
The Canadian Animal Health Institute is proudly a member of the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity (CCFI) which is a not-for-profit organization that works with partners from coast to coast promoting the shared commitment to provide credible information about food and farming.
The Real Dirt on Farming
Farm and Food Care Ontario is a non-profit, agricultural education coalition affiliated with the Canadian Centre for Food integrity. It represents Ontario farmers and associated businesses to build public trust in food and farming in Ontario and across Canada. CAHI and its members contribute animal health information to this publication.
The Real Dirt on Farming is just one tool they have developed to answer many of the most common questions about agriculture and food production. Now in its 3rd edition, The Real Dirt on Farming helps to explain Canadian food and farming. It provides basic facts on topics conventional and organic farming, animal health and animal welfare, environmental sustainability, and technology.
Agriculture More Than Ever
CAHI proudly partners with Agriculture More Than Ever, a coast-to-coast community of agricultural advocates or “agvocates” to add their voices to the conversation about food and farming.
