A significant portion of Canadian farmers have had an incident resulting in an injury or close call on their operation, but these accidents don't necessarily change behaviour, according to a recent survey by Farm Credit Canada (FCC).
Farm Credit Canada (FCC) has launched a $100-million venture capital fund to support proven, viable companies through unexpected business disruptions, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
The average value of Canadian farmland increased by 5.2 per cent in 2019, the smallest increase over the past decade, according to the latest FCC Farmland Values Report.
FCC has received an enhancement to its capital base that will allow for an additional $5 billion in lending capacity, Marie-Claude Bibeau, minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada announced today.
Canadian consumers are only one step removed from the people who produce most of the food that lands on their dinner tables, according to Farm Credit Canada’s (FCC) director of Industry and Stakeholder Relations.
Climate change, protectionism and automation – three forces Bloomberg identifies as major disruptors to the global economic outlook – also appear among the most significant trends to watch in the Canadian agri-food supply chain for 2020.
