Canadian Agricultural Partnership

February 13, 2018 – Ottawa, Canada – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector is a key driver of economic growth, innovation and trade. Economic
indicators show a strong and dynamic Canadian agricultural sector, with a growing global middle class looking
for our world-class products.

Federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister, Lawrence MacAulay, celebrated Canada’s Agriculture Day alongside
farmers, ranchers, food processors, industry leaders and youth today in Ottawa, where he officially launched the
six federal programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (see Backgrounder).

The Partnership is a progressive $3-billion, federal-provincial-territorial agreement that will help chart the course
for government investments in the sector over the next five years.
