A place of abundance
The Edmonton region’s agricultural sector has scale, built on a foundation of excellence in sustainable practices. As a region that includes both a large urban centre and 1.7 million acres of fertile farmland, agriculture and agri-food in the region includes rural and urban, traditional and high-tech, and strong research and development ecosystems.
The region has a well-developed value chain that includes everything from primary farm production to food and beverage processing, including a vibrant cluster of craft breweries and distilleries and a burgeoning culinary tourism scene.
Beyond that, there’s nowhere in the world better suited to address global food scarcity challenges. We have:
"There may be no greater responsibility than for countries that can grow enough food to do so for those that can't"
"There's an incredible depth of knowledge for agriculture in general, so there's a broad talent pool to draw from. The region is one of the world's leading research centres for machine learning and AI techniques."
