About The ASIFP

First Nations have valuable traditional knowledge concerning several products of indigenous land. Abandoned with time for socio-economic reasons or because of the loss of their ancestral lands , now the First Nations and the general population present a new interest in medicinal plants and edible plant products. In this context, the food Society of indigenous local products is given primary mandate to promote the products of indigenous land from their own processing plants and to provide assistance to future indigenous farmers and harvesters in Quebec and Ontario.


  • Support for the indigenous farmers (farm machinery, fertilizers, crop insurance program)
  • Help and Support scientific research for innovation on local indigenous products
  • Provide information about agricultural government programs to members of the ASIFP
  • Support environmental research on the survival of native plants (medicinal plants) and traditional seeds protection (rights, genes) for the indigenous farmers
  • Promote aboriginal food products in food and health market stores
  • Protect and teach about medicinal indigenous plants.

  • Support and promote agricultural activities, food processing and the marketing of indigenous traditional food products.
  • Work to create a pan-Canadian Aboriginal Cooperative
