4-H Canada and Farm Credit Canada: Continuing to foster strong, vibrant communities in partnership with youth

Ottawa, Ontario – 4-H Canada is very proud to announce the extension of its national partnership with Farm Credit Canada (FCC) for an additional year. The successful continuation of the partnership will see a funding commitment of $250,000 to support national, provincial, and club-level programs and initiatives across Canada through to March 2021.

The enduring partnership between Farm Credit Canada and 4-H Canada is built on a common goal shared by both organizations: to foster thriving and vibrant communities across Canada where meaningful opportunities are created for 4-H youth.

“4-H in Canada is stronger with partnerships like the one with FCC,” said Shannon Benner, 4-H Canada CEO. “For more than 25 years, our shared values have helped to shape communities across Canada and support the development of responsible, caring and contributing young people who are leaders in those communities.”

4-H Canada’s goal of helping young Canadians “Learn To Do By Doing” in a safe, inclusive and fun environment has been a strong thread in the story of Canadian agriculture, and has been supported greatly by FCC throughout the lifecycle of the FCC 4-H Club Fund and other funding initiatives.

“FCC is proud to partner with 4-H Canada in contributing to the learning and development of young people throughout rural Canada,” said Todd Klink, chief marketing officer for FCC. “Whether they aspire to be a consumer, producer, retailer or manufacturer, there’s a seat at the table for everyone in Canadian agriculture.”
