Working for B.C.'s farmers and ranchers.
BC Agriculture Council is the lead industry advocate for key sector-wide priorities in British Columbia. Our mission is to grow a strong, sustainable and competitive agriculture sector through building industry consensus and advancing public policy. We achieve this by delivering a unified voice for the sector to government through our member farm associations that in turn, represent approximately 96% of provincial farm gate sales in B.C.
Today, British Columbia's Finance Minister, the Honourable Katrine Conroy, unveiled the government’s budget for the 2024 fiscal year that included a historic investment of $83 million in water storage for B.C. farmers and ranchers.
Registration is now open for a series of workshops available across the province to help producers prepare for drought and better understand how drought management decisions are made in B.C. The workshops are available from February to April 2024 and organized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Ministry of Water, Land and Resource Stewardship.
BC Agriculture Council wishes to thank everyone who helped make the 22nd annual BC Agri-Food Industry Gala another fantastic event. Be sure to check out the event recap video, photo gallery and award highlights on our webpage.
