- CBAN- Canadian Biotechnology Action network - CBAN Mission-to promote food sovereignty and democratic decision-making on science and technology issues in order to protect the integrity of the environment, health, food, and the livelihoods of people in Canada and around the world by facilitating, informing and organizing civil society action, researching, and providing information to government for policy development.
- Organic Agriculture Protection Fund - One of the goals of the OAPF Committee is to continue to lobby all levels of government against introduction of genetically engineered (GE) wheat, other genetically engineered crops, or any genetically engineered substance prohibited by certified organic standards.
We are also working on other fronts to lobby for regulations that will prohibit GMO contamination, and for the enforcement of regulations that make the biotech companies accountable for the consequences of their actions.
To date we have addressed parliamentary committees, the Senate, the federal Agriculture Minister and the Prime Minister himself. Members of the OAPF Committee are also involved in important initiatives regarding seed purity and agricultural research where they constantly defend GMO-free agriculture.
