Coast to coast to coast, Canadians share a love of food and the country they call home. Food is in our nature, and we bring our regional and multicultural traditions to the table.

Along the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic Ocean shores, fish and seafood dominate, while beef, bison and pork are sustainably raised in farm fields across Canada. Québec and its neighbours cultivate our world-famous maple syrup, while food and drink producers everywhere package the best of Canada in every product.
