2019 Annual General Meeting Recap

2019 AGM Recap

CFA held its 2019 Annual General Meeting, from February 27 – 28, in Ottawa at the Marriott Hotel.

More than 200 delegates and observers gathered to explore policy issues and industry priorities at sessions designed around the theme “Producing Prosperity.” CFA looked at the many ways that investment in rural Canada and the agri-food sector could benefit the nation as a whole.

The AGM drew a wide range of participants, including farm and agricultural industry leaders, government and industry representatives, elected officials and national media.

Our 2019 meeting program examined industry trends and looked at upcoming challenges and opportunities in the sector. There was a strong focus on the future of the sector in looking at new technologies and the implementation of the new carbon pricing system. The first annual Brigid Rivoire Award for Champions of Agricultural Mental Health was presented at the AGM to the UPA for their amazing Sentinel Program.
