MSC welcomes Jane Rabinowicz, Executive Director of USC Canada,  in a public lecture entitled, "Leading from the field: Farmer-led solutions for food sovereignty, climate resilience and sustainability of small scale agriculture."

USC Canada promotes vibrant family farms, strong rural communities, and healthy ecosystems around the world. With engaged Canadians and partners in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, they support programs, training, and policies that strengthen biodiversity, food sovereignty, and the rights of those at the heart of resilient food systems – women, indigenous peoples, and small-scale farmers.

In 2016, Rabinowicz was named to the Global and Mail's 53 most influential people in Canadian food for her work  in seed security in Canada. And in 2017, she was profiled by CBC as part of a six-part documentary series called "WE ARE CANADA," that celebrates the next generation of passionate Canadian changemakers.
