2021 CFA Annual General Meeting
CFA’s AGM will be held virtually for the first time – from February 24-26, 2021. The days will run from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET, with February 26th being entirely devoted to resolutions.
This year’s AGM theme is “Unleashing Ag’s Potential”, focusing on how agriculture can play an impactful role in Canada’s recovery from COVID-19 and beyond.
As an essential industry, Canadian farmers have had to navigate difficult circumstances throughout the pandemic. However, end to end, agriculture and the entire agri-food supply chain has been able to navigate around all the obstacles it faced and continue to provide Canadians and markets around the globe with safe, high quality and affordable food.
Food is a foundational pillar of a functional society, and people have never been more aware of what industries are truly essential than today. As we enter the new year, Canada and the world can see some light at the end of the tunnel and the end of this pandemic. Now is the time to think about recovery. A time to unleash agriculture’s potential as an economic engine to help drive Canada’s recovery for years to come.
Further details on the AGM will be available in the coming weeks.
This year is also an election year for CFA, and they will be held for the positions of President, 1st Vice-President and 2nd Vice-President.
