Growing Careers in Agriculture and Food: The Videos

Ever wonder what a day in the life at CTA is like? How about why we do what we do?

Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc. (OAFE) profiled a few members of our team for their “Growing Careers” project.

In 2012, OAFE received a grant from the Ag Adaptation Council titled, Collaborative Approach for a Conduit Between Students and Emerging Agriculture Careers and Innovations.

A key focus of this project was the development of a collaborative approach that connects the agri-business sector to the education sector in an attempt to develop a cutting edge program that brings career information to students. Working together, they are delivering programs and resources to students that showcase agricultural innovation and technologies as they relate to emerging agri-business career opportunities.

As part of this focus, OAFE profiled 25 Agri-Businesses. These profiles are posted on growingcareers.caA a place where students and educators can go to learn more about careers in agriculture.

So, without further ado–here are the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance’s Career Profiles!
