Take Action / About


The Canadian Biotechnology Action Network (CBAN) brings together 17 organizations including farmer associations, environmental groups and international development organizations, all of which have serious concerns about genetic engineering in food and farming.

Mission: To promote food sovereignty and democratic decision-making on science and technology issues in order to protect the integrity of the environment, health, food, and the livelihoods of people in Canada and around the world by facilitating, informing and organizing civil society action, researching, and providing information to government for policy development.

To achieve this CBAN works to:

– Facilitate collaborative campaigning at the local, regional, national and international levels
– Enable individual Canadians to take strategic and effective action
– Research and monitor new technologies and provide credible information
– Challenge government to transparency, accountability and democratic process

CBAN Is a project of Tides Canada Initiatives.
