Canada’s food and beverage exports have nearly doubled over the past decade and the sector continues to stand out from the rest of the country’s manufacturing industry, according to J.P. Gervais, chief agricultural economist for Farm Credit Canada.
Average farmland values in Canada continued to climb in 2016, but lost steam in most provinces, according to Farm Credit Canada’s (FCC) latest Farmland Values Report.
FCC is now accepting applications from registered charities and non-profit organizations in rural Canada for the FCC AgriSpirit Fund.
For 10 years, FCC has been contributing to the vitality of Canada’s official languages through the FCC Expression Fund. This year, $50,000 was awarded to eight minority language projects across Canada.
