For generations, agriculture has made significant contributions to Canada’s economy, food supply, environment and culture. On July 1, 1867, the federal Department of Agriculture was created and the first Minister of Agriculture was appointed. Today, Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, provides leadership in the growth, development and sustainability of the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector.
Agriculture and agri-food is now a $100-billion industry: Canadian foods and beverages are found around the globe. Canada is the world’s fifth-largest exporter hitting new records every year. The agriculture and agri-food industry also employs 2.2 million Canadians (that's 1 in 8 jobs).
