The Eating in Canada research group is an interdisciplinary, interinstitutional research group devoted to the study of Canadian foodways in the long twentieth century.

Our aim is to explore what and how Canadians choose to eat, and what informs those choices. We use food as a lens through which to view cultural continuity and change in Canada in the twentieth century. In order to understand why and how Canadians have come to adopt new foods and food customs while preserving others, we are taking an interdisciplinary approach to examine Canadian foodways and identify underlying continuities, the deeply embedded and taken-for-granted habits of domestic foodways, as well as the conditions that redirect them or reorder them.
