Canada’s Agriculture Day on February 12, 2019 is a day when everyone can come together and celebrate the business of Canadian agriculture and engage in positive dialogue about agriculture and food.
In our 174th year, the Peterborough Agricultural Society recognizes the history and hard work of local farmers past and present. Today is the day we celebrate, across this great country, the importance of the Canadian farming industry.
- 1 in 8 Canadian jobs are in the agriculture sector
- Canada is the world’s fifth largest agricultural exporter
As Canadians, we can be proud that farmers produce among the safest high-quality food for our country and the world.
Locally, we have organizations that are working hard to bring together stakeholders and thought leaders to ensure that Peterborough is well positioned to leverage new farm technologies to continue to be a significant contributor to the industry; now and in the future.
Today, we extend our thanks to all those in the ag industry for their tireless work. We are proud and eternally grateful.
