Join us November 1 – 5th for The Royal Education Week

You’re invited to take part in our week long celebration of education! We will be sharing and inspiring you with exciting educational programming from some of our incredible partners. Teachers and their students will be able to explore farms across Ontario through Virtual Field Trips followed by live Q&A sessions with the farmers themselves. The Royal Food and Nutrition Forum Hosted by Farm Food Care Canada will address important topics like Food Waste (Presented by The Food Network personality Bob Blumer), a farmer panel with temporary foreign workers, exploring sustainability from farm to fork and Nutrition for Healthy Aging. Students and job seekers are invited to access The Royal Education Symposium Presented by University of Guelph to discover the multitude of careers in the innovative agri-food sector. Attendees will also be able to take part in our collaboration with AgCareers for The Feed Your Future campaign; a series of regional virtual career fairs and helpful employment events across Canada and the US.
