National Transition Program

This program seeks to help bridge the gap between generations of farmers to provide Canada’s future farmers with the best chance for success. It is comprised of a series of Succession & Transition Planning workshops for farm families, coupled with a Successor Development program, exclusively for young farmers.

Young farmers have a chance to apply to be selected to participate in a Successor Development program. The Program allows young farmers to take part in key industry events dedicated to farm business management and more importantly, taking over the farm.

Bridging the Gap: Transition Planning Workshop for Farm Families!

Step Up to Succession with Farm Management Canada!

Is your family farm is a state of transition? Are you looking to start the succession conversation?

Yes?! Then Farm Management Canada’s new Bridging the Gap Workshop is for you!

The Bridging the Gap Workshop welcomes farm families to work with renowned farm family coach Elaine Froese and farm management consultant Cedric MacLeod to address some the elephants in the room that are preventing or hindering succession planning back on the farm.
