dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates the influence of policies on domestic food security in Canada and their influence on the foods provided by food accessibility programs. Through a literature and documentary review, relevant policies that influence food accessibility were assessed under an environmental justice framework to evaluate the degree that these policies accommodate for vulnerable populations. There are few Canadian policies that impact food accessibility programs and influential policies inconsistently demonstrate a consideration for the aspects of environmental justice. This short analysis suggests that current policies are ineffective at achieving domestic food security and that additional research and new policies should be developed to better ensure the right to food for all Canadians.en_US
