What is the Canada Brand?
The Canada Brand is designed to give the Canadian food and agriculture industry a competitive advantage, through a common strategy and set of tools.
The objective is to raise the profile of and help differentiate your Canadian food products from the competition. The strategy and its elements are free to use and were developed in collaboration with industry and the provincial governments.
