BC Young Farmers (BCYF) is a working committee within BCAC that believes in moving agriculture into the future. BCYF has a strong following of young farmers with small and large operations alike. BCYF assists young farmers in B.C. aged 19-40 with information, education and support to ensure farming remains a success in our province. Through their events and workshops, their networks have an opportunity to expand their knowledge and exchange ideas that can positively influence farming in B.C.

BC Young Farmers is proud of the reach of our adapted 2021 New Entrant Skill Development Program, which supports young farmers in gaining access to the skills they need to reach their farming potential. Watch for the announcement of our next season late 2021. This program is funded through the governments of Canada and British Columbia as part of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a $3 billion federal-provincial-territorial initiative to strengthen the agriculture, agrifood and agri-based product sector.
