New Report Released

The Canadian Institute for Research on Linguistic Minorities (CIRLM) has published a major study on food security and insecurity in New Brunswick. The report paints a first provincial picture of community initiatives that improve food security, such as food banks and community gardens.

The authors recommend concrete actions to reduce hunger in New Brunswick. The Minister of Social Development, Cathy Rogers, said that, “This research is already having an impact on the work we are doing at Social Development. Research helps me, as Minister, make evidence-based decisions and helps guide our work on food security in New Brunswick.”

The researchers recommend adopting a provincial strategy to increase the impact of actions taken and to strengthen the best practices of community organizations and effective measures by government. They also recommend improving food assistance to better counteract regional disparities in the province and the vulnerability of persons suffering from food insecurity.
