PROVINCE LAUNCHES ONLINE PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT ON MANITOBA'S AGRICULTURE AND AGRI-FOOD INDUSTRY



The Manitoba government is launching an online public engagement to seek feedback on the priorities and future direction of Manitoba’s agriculture and agri-food industry, Agriculture and Resource Development Minister Blaine Pedersen announced today.

“Manitoba’s agri-food industry has demonstrated a strong commitment to Ag Action Manitoba and the next agricultural policy framework dialogues,” said Pedersen. “We are seeking people’s experiences with the Ag Action Manitoba program and will collect data on key sector priorities for Manitobans.”

Building on previous engagement, the province is seeking Manitobans thoughts on the priorities and future direction of Manitoba’s agriculture and agri-food industry. This information will support preparation for the upcoming Federal/Provincial/Territorial (FPT) Ministers of Agriculture meeting where the next FPT agricultural policy framework priorities and policy statement will be set.

Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development is seeking to better understand Manitobans experiences with the Ag Action Manitoba program, thoughts on existing Ag Action Manitoba priority areas, and thoughts on new and emerging issues and opportunities in the sector.
