The 31st Annual convention of the National Defence Fund was held on July 10th and 11th in Quebec City. This year some of the topics discussed were trade agreements and in particular the re-negotiation of NAFTA and how it will affect manufacturing in Canada where Supply Management is of particular interest to our Dairy and Poultry sectors.

We also heard from the Canadian Mental Health Association about Mental Health in the Workplace, how stigma can affect workers, and about Mental Health as a Social Justice issue.

Members also participated in sector specific meetings.
