History of Slow Food in Canada

Slow Food has been active in different regions in Canada for more than 10 years, with a particularly strong presence in Montreal, Ontario and British Columbia. During this time, Slow Food has become one of the most important bilingual food organizations in Canada.

Today, more than one thousand members belong to thirty convivia which span the country from Newfoundland and Cape Breton Island to Vancouver Island and even Whitehorse in the Yukon. Slow Food membership in Canada has been stable at around 1,300 members since 2008. Toronto has the largest convivium with roughly 200 members.

Slow Food in Canada is the coordination team of the Canadian Slow Food convivia network.
