Media Release: Agricultural Institute of Canada Recognizes National Public Service Week

Ottawa, ON – June 15, 2015 – As National Public Service Week is upon us, the Agricultural Institute of Canada (AIC) is pleased to recognize the hard work done by public servants to support agricultural research in Canada.

Every day, Canada?s agricultural industry benefits from the work undertaken by the thousands of public servants, at both the federal and provincial levels, across Canada.

“Agricultural research is critical to a sustainable and competitive agricultural sector,? said Dr. Lianne Dwyer, AIC?s Chair of the Board of Directors. ?Public servants that enable it are doing an important work that benefits us all.”

AIC wants to recognize the hundreds of scientists that work in various settings from research laboratories to administrative offices in Ottawa and provincial capitals.

Often called upon to provide advice but seldom officially recognized, the work done by agricultural scientists and other public servants in the agriculture sector helps to further Canada’s economic growth and feed all Canadians.
