The Canadian Food Hero recognition is given each year by Slow Food in Canada to individuals who protect, defend and promote sustainable, good, clean and fair food by actively and positively contributing to a healthy food system, preserving the rich culinary history of their region, whether they are growers, harvesters, writers, entrepreneurs or activists.

- Ghislain Trudel (Québec)
- Chef Robert Clark (British Columbia)
- Josh Oulton and Patricia Bishop (Nova Scotia)
- Really Local Harvest (New Brunswick)
- Tony and Penny Marshall (Prairies)
