Our Passion

Colleen Smith, Executive Director

Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc. gets a new name and a new look...

After a quarter century of service to schools and the agri-food industry, we’ve evolved to keep pace with a new breed of curious, technologically-savvy students. We have a new look – one that reflects progress and a vision for tomorrow.

We remain committed to providing teachers and students with a discussion platform to learn about agriculture and food production, and to inspiring students to pursue careers in our sector. We are excited to continue creating agriculture and career literacy under our new AgScape® brand.

  • Align with the Ontario curriculum for grades 7 – 12
  • Are fact-based and unbiased
  • Encourage students to think critically about agri-food related issues
  • Expose students to the vast career opportunities in the sector
