Alongside our AITC member organizations, we are driven by a passion for the agriculture and food sector and lifelong learning.

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.
