Report on Agriculture’s Connection to Health

The Provincial Health Services Authority has released a new report on agriculture’s connection to health, together with resources that highlight potential roles for local governments in supporting health through evidence-based planning.

The report details connections between agriculture and health, and addresses:

  • Local food safety and nutrition;
  • Agriculture in public settings (e.g. farm-to-institution initiatives);
  • Food self-sufficiency;
  • Agriculture and water quality; and
  • Agriculture and climate change.

Companion documents and resources including a Responding to Local Governments report detailing how evidence can inform local planning, are available on the BC Food Security Gateway webpage.
