CAPI spans the Canadian agri-food landscape. The Institute takes a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach. CAPI consults with a variety of stakeholders to identify important areas of activity, and assembles core work teams of subject matter experts to work on each project. CAPI's objective is to bring together the best and brightest minds to tackle issues of relevance to the agri-food sector.
CAPI provides a framework for the development of future agricultural policy options by:
- Commissioning studies;
- Convening expert panels to review and critique these studies;
- Conducting sessions for stakeholders to provide their views; and,
- Distributing the results of its work to agri-food industry associations, businesses, farm organizations, governments, other national and international bodies, and academic institutions.
CAPI works with a broad range of organizations to collaborate on research, identify best practices, and support other ongoing initiatives with policy-making implications.
