Welcome to the B.C. Food System Policy Database

This database is a centralized resource for planners, policy makers, community advocates, local organizations and the policy curious to search for policy precedents and to better understand how local government policy in B.C. is addressing local food systems. Search by a range of characteristics to find food system policies that have been adopted by local governments across B.C. For more information about using the database and how it was developed see How to use the Database

Quick search tips

1) Search any field independently or in combination with other fields. Filling in more fields will narrow search results.

2) For topic and subtopic searches: Choose 'Is one of' to search for policies that include ANY of the (sub)topics selected and therefore broaden the search. Choose 'Is all of' to search for policies which include ALL of the selected (sub)topics and therefore narrow the search.

3) To view the policy contained in each document, or a description of relevant content, click "View Details", or click the document title to view the selection on its own.

4) After applying your search criteria, you can use CTRL + F on your keyboard to easily find topics/subtopics of interest within a given policy document.
