List of Policy Changes and Cuts:
As of 2014, Ontario’s household rate of food insecurity sat at nearly 12 per cent, with two cities in Ontario having some of the highest rates municipally across Canada.[i] To date there are no identified policy and funding changes that would explicitly pertain to this SDG. While there have not been any notable announcements that would specifically address food security in Ontario, there have been decisions that impact income security and the minimum wage (see “Decent Work and Economic Growth” and “No Poverty” SDGs) – two policy areas related to the ability of Ontarians to support themselves and achieve food security.
