This project aims to understand agricultural law practices in British Columbia and how these have affected indigenous food security and sovereignty. This project examined historical land-use changes in the province as well as indigenous food systems. In an effort to rebuild an inclusive, nutritious, and resilient food system in the province, we have outlined recommendations for laws and policies. We hope this report will stimulate meaningful dialogue.
