The annual public awareness event highlights the contributions agriculture makes to the economy, and how important and vital it is for all Canadians.
Canada’s agriculture and agri-food system generated over $134.9 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2021 and employs 2.1 million people across the country, including 35,260 in Manitoba alone. Manitoba is home to 24 agri-food research and development centres, and our province leads the way in providing cutting edge technology and skills to the entire agriculture sector.
