Seeking Albertans' input on agricultrue research
The government is holding engagement sessions and launching an online survey to gather feedback about the future of agriculture research in Alberta.
“We are working with farmers to determine their research priorities. This is an opportunity to transform how we do research and attract investment from the private sector. I see world-leading agricultural research happening here, either by leveraging work happening in existing facilities or building brand new ones.”
Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
There are six public engagement sessions throughout the province. The government will be seeking input on:
- what farmer-led research means to Albertans
- farmer-led research priorities
- governance models for delivering farmer-led research

How's Your Infrastructure Doing?
Infrastructure is important! After all, a functional infrastructure system is the physical foundation of a healthy, productive, and vibrant community. Without it, our lives would be a lot less convenient and a lot more difficult.
Municipalities right across Canada are dealing with aging infrastructure like pipes, roads, sidewalks, bridges and buildings. This is true right here in the MD of Wainwright.
