The Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) brought together farm and food leaders from across Canada to its annual conference.
This year’s theme, Building a Resilient Future for Canadian Agriculture, was especially meaningful after the challenges of the past few years, according to CFA President Keith Currie.
“Agriculture has experienced many disruptions that have affected the entire food supply chain. COVID, climate change, transportation disruptions and trade wars are all uncontrollable circumstances that farmers often find themselves affected by,” Currie said. “As we enter into this new era, it’s important that Canada pivots to focusing on the resilience of essential industries like agriculture to ensure that we can continue to act as a reliable global food supplier.”
Currie said the value of this meeting is bringing the agriculture sector together to develop policy solutions and build partnerships that moves the industry to success.Click here to see more...
