What Do You Bring to the Table?

FOOD LEADER Interview Series

Join us as our Youth in Food Systems participants explore careers in food systems through a series of interviews with Canadian food leaders.

When you think of jobs available in our food systems, what comes to mind? 

If you’re like most people, you might immediately think about farmers, or truck drivers, or chefs. You’re less likely to consider career paths such as food science, seed saving, or food policy.

The reality is that there are hundreds, possible thousands, or potential careers available in our food systems, providing 1 out of every 8 jobs to Canadians. Many of them require advanced skills and education, and many of them are growing in demand.

This youth-led interview series will attempt to highlight some of the many, many food paths to be taken, with a focus on careers in sustainability and offering a space for young people to learn about and from some amazing people working to create better food systems in our country.
