CSL unveils new food charter and action plan

I was at  Côte Saint-Luc City Hall April 18 where we unveiled our food charter and action plan to transform our mostly residential suburb into an urban agriculture leader in Quebec.

In addition to the action plan, we also unveiled our food charter, which is a statement of values and principles to guide the food policy. The goals of the food charter are wellness, the creation of great places, community building, food security, the joy of growing food, sustainability and more. 

The action plan and food charter are available at

We will start two community gardens this year. District 2 is not part of the initial pilot project, but plans call for all eight districts to be included in the not too distant future.

Here is a recording of  Mayor Housefather's announcement to the media.
