Thank you for visiting Canadian Milk Matters

After 2015 was spent successfully defending the access of Canadians to safe reliable Canadian milk through the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations, 2016 brings new challenges for the industry and for Canadians.

Canadian Milk Matters will continue to focus on issues that matter most to our dairy farmers – the very backbone of our rural economies – and to consumers, who want to know that they are paying reasonable prices for their milk products while not having to worry about the safety and quality of the milk and milk products they buy.

Please take a moment to fill out a short survey about your priorities and your views on key issues for dairy farmers and consumers in Canada.

Thank you.
