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.
Tickets to the annual BC Agri-Food Industry Gala are now available. The annual fundraiser takes place on January 24, 2024, and brings together farmers, ranchers, agri-food leaders and supporting industry stakeholders from across the province to celebrate agriculture in BC.
