About Agriculture in the Classroom Canada
Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) is the national voice for agriculture education in Canada. We are driven by two passions: the agriculture and food sector, and lifelong learning.
As a charitable organization, we operate from coast to coast with our ten provincial member organizations to deliver accurate, balanced, and current curriculum-linked agriculture and food resources, programs, and initiatives that are based on science. Together, we are committed to engaging Canadian students and educators to enhance their knowledge of, and connection to agriculture and food. Transparency, integrity, empowerment, inclusivity and collaboration firmly ground us in everything we do.
Through inquiry-based learning, we encourage students and educators to be curious, critical thinkers. By offering dynamic and unique outreach opportunities we bring students up close and personal with Canada’s agriculture and food story!
Our Vision: Agriculture in every classroom, inspiring every student.
Our Mission: To cultivate a meaningful connection to agriculture and food for students and educators.
Food connects us all to agriculture. In a complex and changing world, it is more important than ever to inspire the next generation to care about the food they eat, where it comes from, the farmers who grow it, and how it got to their plates.
AITC-C embraces Canadians’ interest in how their food is produced, by providing accurate, balanced and current, curriculum-linked teaching tools and resources on agriculture.
We believe in enhancing knowledge and appreciation of agriculture and food in Canada. As part of a cross-country effort, we work with our 10 provincial members to empower students and educators with learning programs, resources, and initiatives focused on the agriculture and food industry.
These innovative tools and resources for teachers and students will help build a stronger, more sustainable agriculture and food sector. Each year, we reach over 2 million students across Canada!
We are proud to work with numerous partners, including government, industry, and passionate individuals who share our belief in creating educational experiences for students that will engage, connect, and inspire a deeper connection to agriculture in Canada.
