Squamish-Lillooet Food Project

Squamish Lillooet Food Project

2017 – Present

Project Description

The Whistler Centre for Sustainability is leading a project to advance region-wide initiatives that create a more sustainable food system in the Squamish-Lillooet region. Building on existing plans and policies, and a scan of best practices and existing gaps, the project will convene key food and agriculture players from across the region to share successes that can be scaled up, to identify barriers that require region-wide solutions, and identify and secure commitment to implement what’s needed across the region to improve farm protection, food production, local processing, marketing, etc.

The project follows on the heels of the Southwest BC Bioregion Food System Design Project recently completed by Kwantlen Polytechnic University. The Centre will provide support, facilitation and assistance to advance region-wide initiatives, working with the region’s local governments and with the many food and agriculture-related organizations.
