Canada is a leader in agriculture and agri-food, with exports known the world wide and a groundbreaking local food movement. Farming is the very foundation the country was built on, attracting people to the New World for generations. Canadian food products are winning international acclaim and many of our agricultural and environmental programs are helping farmers everywhere, in Canada and abroad.
We’re excited to welcome more than 260 delegates to experience New World agriculture as the world’s leading agricultural journalists assemble for the first IFAJ congress in Canada in more than 40 years.
Canada is a young nation compared to many other IFAJ member countries. But in our relatively short history, we have developed a pride in our innovations and our accomplishments – both those of our past, and those that are helping define the future of agriculture. Ours and yours.
