Agriculture Co-operatives Webinar
Agriculture in Canada is a 49-billion-dollar industry, and Indigenous communities are exploring ways to participate. Farm Credit Canada’s recent survey on Indigenous agriculture shows many communities are interested in increasing food sovereignty and security, creating new sources of revenue, providing jobs and training opportunities, and getting into value-added processing. Besides the economic upsides to agriculture, there are substantial social and cultural opportunities to pass on knowledge and be caretakers of the land. The co-op model has a role to play in Indigenous agriculture, and this presentation will explore how the model can help communities participate in this vital industry.
Join host, Trista Pewapisconias, a proud member of Little Pine First Nation and Indigenous Engagement Lead for Co-operatives First, to explore the promising future of Indigenous agriculture and the role co-operatives can play in realizing it.
