Canada is a beloved place for almost all new immigrants, including Chinese Canadians. Canada’s fertile and vast land offers huge opportunities for Chinese Canadians to operate farm businesses in their new homeland. However, culture, language and practice differences are major barriers for them to enter the Canadian agriculture industry. To overcome these problems, our center has been working on a “Chinese Canadian Farm Start Program“ since the very beginning, even before our center was established in 2008. We have helped many new immigrants start their own farm businesses including vineyards, cash crop, fruit farms, wineries, greenhouses and livestock farms in Ontario and other areas of Canada.
Today, Chinese Canadian farmers not only produce ethnic food and other crops to supply large cities, some of them also supply the international market directly, especially to Asia. Canada has a well-established agriculture and agri-food industry with long-standing success in the global marketplace. Chinese Canadian farmers also work as ambassadors when introducing Canada’s best practices, innovative products and high-quality foods to Asia and the world.
For the betterment of the Canadian agriculture industry, we invite you, local farmers and shareholders to continue to support our Farm Start Program. Together, we CAN make a difference!
