CAPI’s work is a team effort for gauging the pulse of the agri-food industry

WhyResearch. Collaborate. Elevate.

We are the place for agri-food leaders to come together, share insights and advance ideas on emerging agri-food issues facing this important sector. By providing a safe place for dialogue, source material and education for all stakeholders, we are helping to ensure growth and prosperity in the industry for generations to come.


We provide a neutral place to hold dialogues and generate perspectives among leaders across the food system.


Through a partnership-oriented approach, we facilitate comprehensive research and frank dialogue.


CAPI’s focus is on long term issues and consequences that could potentially have adverse or positive implications for the agri-food sector.

WhoFrom Strength To Strength

CAPI acknowledges the overall support of its many partners particularly Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. We recognize the financial sponsorship, in-kind contributions and partnership.


The Canadian Agri-Food Foundation (CAFF) is a registered charitable organization incorporated under the laws of Canada. CAFF is governed and run by a four-person voluntary Board of Directors. It operates at arms-length and independent from the structure and authority of the Canadian Agri-Food Policy Institute (CAPI), a not-for-profit organization.  Directors are in support of the goals, objectives and policies of CAPI.

The objective of the Foundation is to promote excellence in the agriculture and agri-food industry in Canada for the benefit of the public by conducting research on best practices related to the agriculture and agri-food industry and disseminating the results of the research to the public, industry stakeholders, the policy research community and the federal and provincial governments and in particular by:

  • conducting research and sharing results on existing and emerging issues in the agricultural sector;
  • developing and assessing balanced, unbiased alternative to issues in the agricultural sector; and
  • providing industry stakeholders advice and a third-party perspective when agricultural policy decisions are made.

Support CAFF – You can make a difference. Consider becoming a partner or supporter of our work through the Canadian Agri-Food Foundation, a registered charity. Your commitment is vital as it is urgent to intensify our efforts as agriculture and agri-food can be essential solution providers for the economy, environment, health, food and global security but creative policy changes are essential.
