Canada’s World, the Evergreen Foundation, Engineers Without Border and the Canadian Merit Scholarship Foundation invite you to a

Food for Talk

OUR ROLE IN THE INTERNATIONAL FOOD CHAIN

The price of rice has risen by as much as 70% over the last year.

Why? And what does that mean for Canada and the rest of the world?

Rising populations, trade and climate change have sent food prices

soaring across the globe. These factors have recently prompted the

United Nations to declare a world food “crisis”. Join us for a public

dialogue bringing together youth, senior and local community members

with representatives from business, government and NGOs. Hear from

expert guest speakers and have your say.
