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.

To be the first to know when the program relaunches, join our mailing list.
