In response to the growing demand for nutritious and affordable foods in Indigenous communities in Canada, these courses will provide the knowledge and skills required to process domestic and traditional foods through in-class and hands-on instruction. These courses cover the essentials of primary value-added processing techniques, regulatory requirements, and food production standards for fresh fruits and vegetables as well as wild\domestic meats and fish. It is expected that this innovative and unique training in food processing will foster growth in commercial business opportunities and will help alleviate conditions of food insecurity.
