OTTAWA: Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, wishes to inform constituents that the Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food (AAFC)  has announced up to $3.7M to help bring youth into the agriculture industry.  Funding will enable employers across the agriculture sector to hire Canadian youth, ages 15 to 30.

Applications are being accepted on a continuous basis starting June 3, 2019 until funding has been fully committed.

Projects must be completed by March 31, 2020.

“This will allow more young people to explore the limitless potential the agriculture industry has to offer,” concluded MP Eglinski.
