On February 11, Canadians will be celebrating the fourth annual Canada's Agriculture Day.
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Marie-Claude Bibeau will be marking the day in Ottawa, where she will provide remarks at the national event.
"Canadian farmers work hard to feed us. Their resilience, their ability to innovate, their respect for the environment, the well-being of animals and their community are an endless source of inspiration for me. These women and men deserve our greatest appreciation. I am proud to celebrate their contributions on the occasion of Canada's Agriculture Day," commented Bibeau.
Canada's Agriculture Day brings together people involved in Canadians agriculture, food and agribusiness to discuss the future of food. This year's celebration focusses on strengthening the relationship between consumers and producers under the theme of "Forks Up For Canadian Agriculture".
Hundreds of events are planned across the country.
Canada's Agriculture Day is an initiative hosted by Agriculture More Than Ever.
