Yasmin oversaw NWAC’s engagement project on a national framework for food policy that culminated in the publication of a final report in May 2018. This was a collaborative project between NWAC and Agriculture and Agri-food Canada that produced key recommendations on how the voices of Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people must be reflected in the forthcoming National Food Policy for Canada.
