Event Description

About the conference

Innovation and investment are key to global prosperity.

Canadian agriculture has long been a frontrunner on the global stage thanks in large part to our commitment to and acceptance of innovation.

This year’s GrowCanada® conference will explore how innovation in agriculture drives economic growth, how it helps us adapt and thrive in the face of major change and how this ultimately benefits consumers.

About the GrowCanada® vision

Our vision is for Canada to be a world leader in providing new products and innovative solutions for agricultural, nutritional, health, energy, and environmental challenges in Canada and around the world, so that all Canadians can enjoy the economic, environmental and social benefits of the bio-economy.
