AAFC has sent an invitation to CAAR representatives to attend a town hall discussion as part of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) industry consultation for the Fertilizer Emissions Reductions Target. The Town Hall will be Chaired by Assistant Deputy Minister Tom Rosser on April 12th.  

The Town Hall will include a presentation from AAFC officials about the emissions reduction target and the issues identified in the Reducing emissions arising from the application of fertilizer in Canada’s agriculture sector Discussion Document, followed by a Q&A session.
