Who we are

Leaders in agriculture education.

Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) is the national voice for agriculture education in Canada. Alongside our AITC member organizations, we are driven by a passion for the agriculture and food sector and lifelong learning. Together, we are committed to engaging Canadian students and educators to enhance their knowledge and appreciation of agriculture and food. Transparency, integrity, empowerment, inclusiveness and collaboration firmly ground us in everything we do.

What we do

We cultivate meaningful connections to agriculture and food for students and educators.

As a charitable organization, we operate from coast to coast with our ten provincial AITC members to deliver accurate, balanced, and current curriculum-linked agri-food resources, programs, and initiatives that are based on science. Through inquiry-based learning, we encourage students and educators to be curious, critical thinkers. By offering dynamic and unique outreach opportunities to connect with Canadians who make their living in agri-food, we bring students up close and personal with Canada's agriculture and food story.
