2023 CFA AGM
The Canadian Federation of Agriculture’s (CFA) 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM), taking place at the Delta Ottawa City Centre Hotel from March 6 – 7, 2023 brings together farm leaders from across the country as well as industry stakeholders and government representatives to help set the priorities for Canadian Agriculture in the coming year.
This year’s theme for the AGM is Building a Resilient Future for Canadian Agriculture, looking at how we can build further resilience in agriculture and the food supply chain in the context of a changing climate and large-scale supply chain disruptions.
Professional development workshops will be available for the staff of CFA member organizations and other attending organizations. This workshop is for staff only. Producer delegates/directors are asked not to attend this session to encourage candid discussion of operational issues.

- Pierre Poilievre, Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada
- Jagmeet Singh, Leader of the NDP
