Canada’s national identity is defined by diversity and multiculturalism. We strive to celebrate differences and encourage the education of history outside of our own, and that means the definition of Canadian cuisine can be hard to nail down.
With the ever-changing landscape of immigrants who bring their influences to our culinary scene, and the traditional Indigenous techniques of Canada’s first inhabitants, our food history is an evolving tapestry of unique tales well worth sharing.
Leading up to Canada Day, we’re taking a glimpse into some of our great nation’s colourful food and agriculture tales; some you’ve heard before, and others that go beyond poutine, maple syrup and BeaverTails.
