CAAR Members Encouraged to Participate in AAFC Sustainable Agriculture Strategy

Consultations on the new Sustainable Agriculture Strategy (SAS) have begun, led by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC). It is important that the voice ag retailers and their farm customers be heard.

AAFC is hosting four virtual, regional focused roundtables for producers.  Be sure to get your ag community involved.

  • British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Yukon - February 24th from 12- 3 PM ET. English with French interpretation. RSVP here.
  • Manitoba, Ontario, Northwest Territories and Nunavut - March 10th from 12- 3 PM ET. English with French interpretation. RSVP here.
  • Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador - March 20th from 12- 3 PM ET. English with French interpretation. RSVP here.
  • National: March 24th from 12- 3 PM ET. French with English interpretation. RSVP here.

Feedback received through the virtual sessions will inform the development of the SAS and support the work of the SAS-advisory committee, co-chaired by AAFC and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture.

Producer Associations and producer groups are also invited to send complete submissions through our Sustainable Agriculture Strategy email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
