The Politics of Milk in Canada

Printer-friendly version

Canada's dairy policy is a very complex web of interrelated policies, programs, and people nested in a number of private and public institutions. It is a system whose creation, expansion, and vigorous defence has been motivated almost entirely by milk producers, i.e., dairy farmers. If they wanted to end the elaborate supply management marketing scheme, open up the border to imports, or renounce the cash subsidies from governments, these changes would be made very quickly by governments.
