Farming is not the only career to be had in agriculture.

This message will be delivered loud and clear to hundreds of high school students today in the heart of Canada’s biggest city.

Grain Farmers of Ontario and the provincial government are holding the first ever Careers in Agriculture event today.

G-F-O says Canada’s agri-food sector will need to fill more than 50,000 positions in the coming years.

The event in Toronto will showcase the agriculture sector with professionals in technology, environmental science, communications and business.
