Feeding Your Future: Connecting Ontario’s Agri-Food Workforce


Through Canadian Agricultural Partnership funding, the OFA and its partners have coordinated a support system for agriculture and food employers from field to fork, to feed Ontario's future.

The project includes a free job matching concierge service, nine virtual career fairs, a series of ten webinars, and specialized training opportunities.

SCOR EDC is proud to be one of the partners associated with this project!
