It’s been a challenging year for many farmers out west due to the severe drought conditions. But Canadian farmers, and the agriculture industry writ large, have continually demonstrated resilience during difficult times. Canada has the potential to become a world leader in agriculture. This is an industry that can help drive economic growth in Canada and be a solutions provider when it comes to combating the challenges of climate change with the right government policies in place.
