The new Canadian Agricultural Youth Council is a group of young Canadians who will provide advice on new and emerging issues that matter most to the sector, enable on-going dialogue on food-related challenges and opportunities, share information and best practices, and provide advice on the strengths and weaknesses of policies and programs affecting the agriculture and agri-food sectors.

It provides an opportunity for the next generation of leaders to share their experiences, unique perspectives, and innovative ideas on how to tackle issues facing youth in the agriculture and agri-food sector.

Applications closed at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on February 14, 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the selection of Canadian Agricultural Youth Council members, and planning for the first meeting, are postponed until further notice.
