Our Natural Resources: Agriculture Summit
Canada’s natural resources include more than oil, wind, hydro, and solar – they also include agriculture and farming. We are continuing our AND focus with natural resource development AND sustainable agriculture practices.
As with most industries, technology and innovation are shaking up Canada’s agriculture industry. Producers are growing crops with higher yields, using less resources at reduced costs. This infusion of technology and innovation within the agriculture industry remains understated and largely unknown outside of the industry.
Agriculture and agri-foods contribute over $100 Billion to the Canadian economy every year. Broader understanding of the competitiveness, innovation and GDP contribution of agriculture is critical to ensuring the industry remains top tier in the global market.
Canada can nourish the world and become a global leader in sustainable agricultural practices. Join us as we work towards creating a framework for a national vision for our agricultural natural resources.
