“Today, let’s celebrate our local producers and all those who work hard to keep our grocery stores stocked with quality Canadian food. Farmers and all food sector workers in Canada have succeeded despite the many challenges posed by COVID-19. Just as we commend the healthcare workers for their heroic efforts, I encourage everyone to show their support and appreciation for our local producers as well. Our farmers care deeply about their land and their animals and are very proud of what they do. Agriculture creates millions of jobs in Canada and is a powerful driver of the economy and a vital part of our rural communities. Agriculture provides dynamic and rewarding careers for our young people, including jobs in science and other technologically advanced fields. On Canada’s Agriculture Day, we say THANK YOU!”

-   The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
