Canada to Establish New Indo-Pacific Agricultural Office

The federal government has earmarked nearly $32 million for the establishment of a new agricultural office in the Indo-Pacific region, a move applauded by Canadian farm groups. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement of the new ag office Friday from Thailand, where he was attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders’ Meeting. The office will form part of Canada’s larger overall Indo-Pacific Strategy, which is expected to be fully released soon. 

According to Ottawa, the ag office will help to increase and diversify Canadian agriculture and agri-food exports to the Indo-Pacific, strengthening trade on both sides of the Pacific.  

“By engaging with stakeholders, regulators, and policy decision makers, it will deepen partnerships with Indo-Pacific partners to diversify export markets and products, create new opportunities, and position Canada as a long-term, reliable trading partner of choice for the Indo-Pacific,” the government said.

We are a family farm in Ontario showing you what we do on our farm to produce eggs and what goes on day to day. Every day we do chores, gather eggs and make feed. On our farm we plant the crops and harvest them to feed the chickens, also we start our laying hens from day old chicks and raise them to be the best birds they can be to give you a grade A quality egg. After we are finished looking after our chickens, anything could happen from washing, waxing, fixing, welding, working on engines, working on classic cars, and more. I hope everyone enjoys cheers.
