Event Description

As the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic is still creating much uncertainty in the world, we have decided to protect our attendees, speakers and sponsors and host our event online. Through a variety of speakers, panels and discussion, we will feature all the same great content, virtually, that you can enjoy from anywhere - your home, office, field, boat, barn or greenhouse!

The Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) is the only event in Canada dedicated exclusively to bringing farm management enthusiasts together to build their business acumen. This year's theme, Prosperity with Purpose, is about taking a proactive approach to farm business management - to build the confidence and underlying capacity to weather any storm and seize opportunities, positioning the farm for continued success.

  • We know what you're thinking "Oh no, not another online conference," but wait!
  • We'll be using a state-of-the-art platform to recreate the same great learning experience as our in-person Conference... and then some!
    You will be able to move around our virtual conference just like in-person; explore various speaker rooms, fill your swag bag with information, compete in mini-challenges for prizes, and network with others!
    We will have an exhibitor hall where you can learn more about organizations that see the value in business management, just as much as we do and chat with them, face-to-face!
  • We will have our National Resource Showcase - just like we do in person!

And the best part?

All main Conference sessions will be FREE!

Or, you can become a premium participant for only $150 and enjoy small-group follow-up sessions with our speakers.

Registration will open early September and we will announce our platform and all the sessions. To ensure attendees from across the country can join us live, we will be hosting learning sessions between 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. EST everyday, from December 8-10, 2020.

All of the Conference material will be available for a week after the live event.

Stay tuned for more information about AgEx 2020!

Manitoba Digital Agriculture Table Visits Innovation Farms

The best meetings are the ones where participants don’t want to leave, where collaborators from diverse sectors find themselves deep in conversation, sharing ideas and inspiration. This was the case on Wednesday, June 12 when EMILI brought members of the Manitoba Digital Agriculture Table to Innovation Farms for a meeting and tour. The morning kicked off with an overview of the work taking place to increase exposure to careers in the agriculture and agri-food sector and discussion around the importance of STEM programs, career panels, work-integrated learning and upskilling opportunities to attract learners from diverse backgrounds into digital agriculture careers. “The future of digital agriculture requires increased education and experiential learning opportunities, to develop vital competencies around technology application, employee readiness, and human skills,” said EMILI Skills and Talent Manager Rachel LeClair as the group of approximately 40 stakeholders from industry, acade

Canadian soil health at risk: Senate report

Climate change, extreme weather events, pollution and urbanization are damaging Canadian soil, and are threatening food security, the environment and millions of livelihoods, according to a new report by the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry. Critical Ground: Why Soil is Essential to Canada’s Economic, Environmental, Human, and Social Health digs deep into the critical role of soil in mitigating climate change, contributing to biodiversity and putting food on tables. The committee is urging the federal government to lead the way in protecting this vital national resource. Soil is the foundation of Canada’s agriculture system and a key economic driver. In 2022, agricultural and food product exports totalled nearly $93 billion. However, the committee heard that there is a lack of awareness of the value of soil, and that education is crucial to changing perceptions of farming in Canada. The report highlights concerns from farmers, ranchers, producers and soil health ex

Soil health, extension services, and doing the right thing

Recently, the Standing Senate Committee on Agriculture and Forestry (AGFO) released their report to complete a study on the status of soil health in Canada. Critical Ground: Why Soil is Essential to Canada's Economic, Environmental, Human, and Social Health highlights the vital role of soil in various aspects of Canada's well-being. The 157-page report is full of recommendations, data, firsthand testimony from individuals across many sectors, international perspectives on soil legislation and policies, and much more.  Some of the recommendations of importance include calling on the federal government to collaborate with provinces and territories to enhance long-term funding for soil extension services, the implementation of tax credits for producers adopting innovative technologies that support soil health, ensuring early adopters are not left behind, and to enhance funding for public/private partnerships for research and development in agricultural and forestry soils.
