EVOLVE OUR PRISON FARMS

Beginning in 2020, Corrections Canada will establish prison dairy operations to produce infant formula for the Chinese market. Canadian prisoners will factory farm thousands of goats to produce milk for Feihe International.

Evolve Our Prison Farms is a national justice movement advocating ethical prison farms. We oppose any model that exploits prisoners or animals for institutional or corporate gain. We support alternative models that are restorative and healing for prisoners, animals, and earth. We believe in the power of people to bring this vision to life.

NEW: Evolve Our Prison Farms proposes that Canada’s prison farms be immediately converted into a federally funded food bank project to address the threat of food insecurity in the COVID-19 crisis. Read the proposal and SIGN THE PETITION.

“These farms can form a foundation for a healthier, more sustainable and more compassionate future for us all. Prisoners can lead the way.”
