Opening channels of dialogue through research
What We're Working On
When CAPI was approached in March 2018 by the Government of the Northwest Territories (NWT) to undertake this study, CAPI was very interested to examine how Barton Report growth strategies could be integrated into a renewed agriculture/food/health policy and regulatory framework in the specific jurisdictional context of the NWT.
This project brings together a select number of doctoral students to address physical, scientific, legal and economic issues related to water use in Canadian agriculture. CAPI’s first working seminar to commence the project was held in June with presentations by Dr. Glenn Fox (economist), University of Guelph, Jamie Benidickson (lawyer), University of Ottawa and Elizabeth Pattey (scientist), Agriculture and Agri-food Canada. The doctoral fellows will continue their collaboration, under the guidance of CAPI, and produce original academic papers on various aspects of agriculture and water use in Canada.
