This is from the published bill. The Library of Parliament often publishes better independent summaries.

The purpose of this enactment is to establish and implement the Government of Canada’s policy respecting agricultural supply management.

The enactment sets out the mandate of the Minister designated for the purposes of the Act, and requires other ministers with responsibilities relating to agricultural supply management to take the measures that they consider appropriate in order to implement the policy.

The enactment also allows the Minister to enter into agreements with the provinces and territories and with foreign states with respect to the implementation of the policy.

Wayne Easter Liberal Malpeque, PE

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-218, An Act for the recognition and promotion of agricultural supply management.

Mr. Speaker, it does indeed give me pleasure to bring forward this bill. The intent of this bill is to further support our successful supply management sector and to ensure that the support, which all political parties in the House agree with, is provided for within a legal framework.

There has been some confusion on whether the government really does support supply management. This gives the members of the government the opportunity to show support in this House through a piece of legislation indicating that all parties do indeed support this successful system of marketing.
