One of CAHRC's core values is INCLUSIVITY. Nowhere is this more evident than with our partnership program.

Partnership is vital to our mission. With the support of our partners, we address the workforce challenges of Canada's agriculture and agri-food industry. Together, we imagine a sustainable future for Canadian farms and agri-businesses where:

  • … we invest as much in people as we do in technology 
  • … we do not compromise expansion plans due to lack of available manpower 
  • … we have options to transfer operations to the next generation 
  • … we provide highly valued career options to our young people
