Happy Canadian Agriculture Day
From seed, to feed, to plate - Canada does it best.
One in 8 jobs in Canada is directly related to agriculture and food production is by far the largest manufacturing employer in the country supporting more than 250,000 jobs.
Farmers are producing more food on less land, while at the same time reducing greenhouse gases, including reductions of diesel fuel use by about 200 million litres each year.
Thank you to all of our farmers, farm families, food processors and agri-sector workers for putting the highest quality food on our plates each and every day.
