The 47th annual National NFU Convention: Agriculture in a Changing Climate

2016 NFU National Convention will take place 

NOVEMBER 24 - 26, 2016
Hilton Garden Inn
90 - 22nd Street East
Saskatoon, SK

Our theme is "Agriculture in a Changing Climate"

Climate change is arguably the most crucial issue of our time. Agriculture is directly affected by climate change, but is also a major greenhouse gas emitter globally. We need to change our practices to adapt and reduce our emissions. Agriculture exists in a changing economic, political and cultural climate as well. Trade agreements, regulations, subsidies, marketing boards, and corporate mergers all have an impact on our livelihoods and ways of life. This year’s convention workshops, panels, resolutions and debates will highlight the impacts of these different climatic changes and point to ways we can improve our prospects by working together.
