Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) and its member organizations provided almost 600,000 student learning experiences from March to May 2023 through programs and initiatives across the country. With a vision to create meaningful connections to agriculture and food, AITC-C is the national advocate for agriculture education, representing a collective of 10 provincial member organizations who deliver agriculture education on the ground across Canada.   


During Canadian Agriculture Literary Month (CALM) in March, 1,040 volunteers helped 3,200 teachers in 2,100 schools provide 185,000 student experiences across Canada, expanding their understanding of agriculture through classroom presentations, activities and resources.


“It’s more important than ever to inspire the next generation to care about the food they eat and where it comes from,” says Rebecca Sooksom, chair of AITC-C and member of AITC-Nova Scotia. 


The AITC-C board, comprised of representatives from each of the 10 provincial members, has a new three-year strategic plan and just launched a national search for an Executive Director to take the organization to the next level. The ideal candidate is passionate about learning and agriculture and a strong relationship builder who can create partnerships to allow AITC-C to grow and thrive.
