Egg Farmers Of Canada Partners With The University Of Waterloo


Egg Farmers of Canada announced a new partnership with the University of Waterloo, establishing Bruce Muirhead as the industry’s first-ever research chair in public policy.

“We are delighted to be working with Professor Muirhead,” said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of Egg Farmers of Canada. “With the creation of this Chair, we hope to continually elevate the caliber of the dialogue on supply management and ensure that any future policy decisions that could affect supply managed commodities are as informed as possible.”

Muirhead will develop a research program that relates to the current and future challenges faced by Canadian egg farmers, providing historical context to the growing conversation about the value of supply management for all Canadians.

“This Chair will allow me to fully engage in the discourse surrounding supply management and its obvious benefits to Canadian consumers and processors, as well as farmers,” said Muirhead. “This approach is increasingly important given Canadian involvement in various trade negotiations where supply management needs to be understood for its value and benefits to the entire food chain.”

Egg Farmers of Canada’s contribution to the University of Waterloo will serve these goals by investing in students, research, and dialogue around public policy issues.
