CAAR is proud to celebrate Canada's Agriculture Day at tonight's Icebreaker Cocktail Reception, sponsored by John Deere Financial. Use the #CdnAgDay and #CAARcon2019 hashtags on Twitter to share your love for Canada's agriculture industry on social media. 

Introduced in 2017 by Agriculture More Than Ever, Canada's Agriculture Day highlights the ag industry and strengthens connections between consumers and the food production chain.

We hope everybody attending the 2019 CAAR Conference in Winnipeg will join us at the Icebreaker Cocktail Reception, from 5 - 7 pm to kick off the conference and raise a glass to celebrate agriculture in Canada – and we have a lot to celebrate!

  • Agriculture employs more than 2 million Canadians; 1 in 8 Canadian jobs are in agriculture or agri-food;
  • Agriculture contributes over $100 billion to Canada’s GDP annually;
  • Canada is the fifth-largest ag exporter in the world and ranks first in global food safety.

CAAR is proud to represent and support ag retailers across Canada who provide growers with the best information, tools and solutions and to meet their changing needs in this rapidly evolving industry. We look forward to another year of serving our members and celebrating Canadian agriculture, today and every day!
