City Acts on Right-to-Know and Local Food

TEA publishes first-ever Culturally-Specific Local Food Guides that provide information about where Torontonians can buy fresh, locally grown food used in Chinese and South Asian cuisine.

City passes first ever Community Right-to-Know Bylaw in Canada that will require businesses (from dry cleaners to funeral homes and auto-body repair shops) to reveal their discharges of 25 priority chemicals.

City Council adopts a Buy Local Food First procurement policy for City Agencies that includes a target to buy 50% local food as soon as possible.
