Ms. Leona Aglukkaq was first elected to work for the Nunavummiut in the House of Commons in October 2008. On October 30th, 2008 she became the first Inuk to be sworn into the Federal Cabinet.

Prior to entering federal politics Ms. Aglukkaq served in the Nunavut Legislative Assembly as the MLA for the district of NATTILIK (communities of Gjoa Haven and Taloyoak).

Christine St Pierre, Quebec’s minister of culture, communications and the status of women, Helen Fotopulos, responsible for culture, heritage, design and the status of women on Montréal’s Executive Committee, and Alan DeSousa, mayor of Saint-Laurent and vice-chair of Montréal’s Executive Committee, are pleased to announce that renowned artist Gwenaël Bélanger will create an artwork to be installed in the borough’s future library. Mr. Bélanger’s project was chosen for its original concept, and his design was submitted during a competitive call for entries. Mr. Bélanger will receive $125,000 to complete his work, a sum that represents 1% of the library’s overall cost of construction.

National Nutrition Month

March 2011

March is Nutrition Month in Canada. This year, Dietitians of Canada has chosen the theme, ” Next link will take you to another Web site Celebrate food…from field to table!” to promote healthy eating.

Our government supports the health and well-being of Canadians and their families, through various healthy-eating initiatives:

Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide and Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide – First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, provide Canadians with simple and easy-to-follow nutrition advice. These guides advise on how much food you need, what types of foods are better for you, and healthy ways to prepare them. The First Nations, Inuit, and Métis guide also reflects the values, traditions, and food choices of Aboriginal peoples.

The Eat Well and Be Active Educational Toolkit includes an educational poster and downloadable activity plans. The Toolkit can be used by health educators to increase Canadians’ knowledge of healthy eating and physical activity, and to inspire them to take action to maintain and improve their health.

Federal, provincial and territorial Health Ministers have agreed to make childhood obesity a collective priority by endorsing Next link will take you to another Web site Curbing Childhood Obesity: A Federal, Provincial and Territorial Framework for Action to Promote Healthy Weights. This framework is guiding our work to engage citizens, government and non-government partners, as well as industry to develop a shared approach to turning the tide on childhood obesity. This will include discussions on different ways to increase the availability and accessibility of nutritious foods, and to reduce the marketing to children and youth of foods and beverages that are high in fat, sugar, or sodium. We are also seeking opportunities to work with health partners to create environments that support healthy weights.

In the fall, I launched the Nutrition Facts Education Campaign with Food & Consumer Products of Canada. The campaign helps consumers better understand and use the Nutrition Facts table, specifically the % Daily Value. It does this with messaging on food packages, in the national media, and on Health Canada’s educational website. Dietitians of Canada have also included information on the % Daily Value in their newly launched cookbook.

In May 2010, the Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada and I announced the creation of Nutrition North Canada, which will replace the Food Mail Program as of April 1, 2011. This new program will subsidize retailers for the cost of shipping healthy, perishable foods to northern isolated communities, as well as support nutrition education activities.

To find out more about these initiatives and healthy eating, please visit Health Canada‘s website. For ideas on how to get physically active, please visit the Next link will take you to another Web site Public Health Agency of Canada website.

In keeping with National Nutrition Month, I encourage Canadians to make every effort to choose nutritious food, whatever the occasion.

Unico was established in 1917 to cater to the growing Mediterranean community in Toronto.  Founder Edward Pasquale’s objective was clear; he wanted to bring the “culture of Italian eating” to every Canadian table by becoming the country’s leading distributor of authentic Mediterranean style ingredients and products.

What we’re about
If you look at our mission, you’ll see that we’re about creating change. Our vision is a world where violence against women isn’t tolerated, where women get equal pay for their work, where access to reproductive health and information is so obvious a right that anything else is simply absurd…where racism, homophobia, classism, nativism etc. simply isn’t tolerated.

Our approach
Our method is to create space for growth and change. Those spaces can be online, in real life, or in your mind. We invite you to use this online space to float ideas and questions, research things you might not have known about, and broaden your mind in ways that encourage you to see the world as bigger than you, bigger than your family, bigger than your city, state, country, etc.

What that means for you
When you join the Red Tent Women’s Project network, you are agreeing that the world needs to be transformed into a better, more tolerant, more awesome place, and that you are going to help do that. How you do that is up to you, but our ultimate goal is to create a community where members are responsible to one another to create change. Nothing more, nothing less! And make sure you tell us what you’re going to do (or did), because you never know…your action may very well inspire someone else’s!

The Brand

Throughout the early evolving years between 1910 and 1915, the Exchange worked to establish itself as a leading force within the global almond industry, but issues from broker incompetence to independent growers destabilizing prices continued to work against them. At that time, California only had about 20 percent or less of the world supply of almonds, while Spain and Italy grew the lion’s share of at least 80 percent. It became quickly apparent to the members of the cooperative that a change in selling strategy was needed and that a name that translated into a high quality image for consumers was the answer. But what label could they attach to their boxes and burlap bags of California almonds that would differentiate them from imported almonds and leave consumers with a lasting high quality image of California almonds?
