Agriculture for Life (Ag for Life) is a charitable organization committed to agricultural literacy.

We strive to enhance appreciation and understanding of agriculture's profound impact on society, the economy, and the environment. While there are many things we could live without; food is not one of them!

The Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) predicts 50,000 agriculture and food jobs will have to be filled in the next few years.
