CAAR participated in Manitoba’s Pre-FPT Agriculture and Food Industry Meeting in June in preparation for the July 2021 Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers of Agriculture meeting. FPT agriculture Ministers will be meeting again in September. 

Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development has prepared the following reports which we would like to share with you for your input, so that we can provide feedback to the Ministry.

The Pre-FPT Agriculture and Agri-Food Industry Meeting
Manitoba industry associations and organizations, academia, Indigenous organizations, and national commodity groups located in Manitoba explored questions presented by the Minister of Agriculture and Resource Development. Attendees participated in discussion topics including sustainability benchmarking, maximizing the benefits from innovation, and building sector diversity and inclusivity.
