Coalition for a Sustainable Food Transition

The Coalition

The Coalition for a Sustainable Food Transition is a group of Canadian organizations that got together for the 2021 Federal elections. We became a permanent coalition after the elections.


Our vision is for all levels of Canadian government and civil society to promote dietary shifts comprised of more plant-based foods and fewer animal foods for the benefit of the environment and public health.


Our mission is to encourage policymakers, nongovernmental organizations and other Canadians to support and implement policies promoting a diet consistent with the recommendations of Canada’s Food Guide and the Planetary Health Diet.

We welcome organizations working on environmental issues and public health to join us.

Our members are:
