Agriculture is a big part of Canada’s economy, accounting for one in every eight jobs and employing over 2.3 million people (Statistics Canada, 2021). The industry has lots of exciting career opportunities in a number of disciplines that go well beyond farming and ranching. 


The agriculture and food sector is at the leading edge of research and innovation to address global challenges. There are endless opportunities which will allow you to make a difference: feed the growing population, protect the environment, care for animals, or helping people.


1 in 8 jobs in Canada are in the

agriculture and agri-food sector.

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

4 jobs exist for every agriculture college graduate with a bachelor’s degree.

Who says career
exploration can't
