Canadian Federation of Agriculture 2019 AGM
27 February - 1 March
Attend the premier gathering of Canadian farm leaders and industry representatives
Plans are well underway for CFA’s 2019 Annual General Meeting, set for February 27 – 28, in Ottawa at the Marriott Hotel. More than 200 delegates and observers will convene to explore policy issues and industry priorities at sessions designed around the theme “Producing Prosperity.”
The AGM draws a wide range of participants, including farm and agricultural industry leaders, government and industry representatives, elected officials and national media.
This year’s AGM theme is “Producing Prosperity” – recognizing how investments in rural Canada can have benefits for urban Canadians, the environment, newly-landed immigrants and for Canada as a whole. The Producing Prosperity campaign will continue throughout the election year as CFA advocates and keeps agriculture top of mind for all Federal parties.
Our 2019 meeting focuses on how investments in Canadian agriculture and rural Canada can have a diverse set of benefits for the nation as a whole. It will also look into how carbon pricing will impact the industry and the opportunities it may provide, as well as the future of Canadian farming from a variety of perspectives. Speakers include:
- Hon. Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-food
- Alistair MacGregor, New Democratic Party Agricultural Critic
- Luc Berthold, Conservative Party Agricultural Critic
- Lee Moates, Member of the Agri-food Economic Strategy Table
The AGM will also feature panels discussing:
- Carbon Pricing: Impacts and Opportunities
- The Future of Canadian Farming: Macroeconomics, Export opportunity and Sustainability
