Alberta Gives Funding to Support Ag Worker Recruitment

Alberta and the federal government are giving $2.5 million to Ag for Life to help companies recruit, hire and retain workers in the province’s agriculture and agri-food industry, a Nov. 25 news release said.

“Alberta’s agriculture sector continues to grow and set new investment and export records despite facing numerous challenges. This funding will help producers and processors with their labour needs so they can remain competitive, grow their businesses, and respond to an international food shortage,” Nate Horner, Alberta minister of agriculture and irrigation, said in the release.

The release noted that since 2011, Ag for Life has delivered agriculture education to over half a million Albertans across the province. The charitable organization works with producers to develop high-quality programming to inspire a better understanding of the integral role agriculture plays in our economy.
