NSERC Program in Food Safety, Nutrition and Regulatory Affairs

The Canadian food system is dynamic and relies on coordination across different sectors in order to provide consumers with healthy, safe and palatable year-round access to foods. As a result, understanding and communicating changes in Government policy and advances in food science and nutrition research is vital in order to provide a safe and sustainable food supply. The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) University-Industry Program in Food Safety, Nutrition and Regulatory Affairs (PFSNRA) serves as a conduit for collaborations, research and information transfer that benefits all sectors of the Canadian food system.
