The Toronto Non-GMO Coalition is a group of organizations from the Toronto area who are working together to increase awareness and effect positive change around GMO issues. Our efforts are focused on providing information to the public on health, environment & ethical issues surrounding genetically modified organisms and on organizing events to bring attention to these concerns.
Member groups have different concentrations, but share the same larger vision of a Canada without genetically modified food. Each group works to provide particular skills and knowledge to support the others in their particular concentrations. Collectively, we seek to effecting change in the Canadian consumer, political and social landscape with respect to GMO issues.
