Summary

Having farm animal products in our food chain is inevitable, but what we can influence is how these animals are treated over the course of their lives. Healthier farm animals equates directly into more sustainable and healthier food sources. Our active involvement in the National Farm Animal Care Committee ensures that the best interests of the animals (not the industry) are advocated for. Your support will help us to continue this work.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Most Canadians are not aware of how their food arrived at their tables. Eggs, milk, beef, lamb, pork products...these all come from animals that, in many cases, are not treated humanely. What happens to the laying hen after her egg production decreases? How are the beef cattle handled over the course of their relatively short lives? Who benefits from our efforts? Everyone, including the animals that are feeding you and your family.

How will this project solve this problem?

Support from the public allows us to continue our active involvement on the National Farm Animal Care Committee. As a founding partner of this Committee it is our mission to ensure that the welfare of farm animals is foremost (versus the interests of industry).

Potential Long Term Impact

As this is an issue that touches most of the population, our continued push for stronger farm animal standards of care will benefit all 30+ million Canadians.
