(Edmonton, Alberta), August 4, 2022 – Alberta Canola is pleased to announce the launch of the newly redesigned educational website learncanola.com. The new user-friendly site has been redesigned to be faster and easier to navigate.
The redesigned website provides curriculum connected, fact-based agricultural content and resources to help educators and students understand how farmers grow canola, its uses and benefits, and its significant economic contribution.
The site is one of the efforts Alberta Canola is making toward improving communication with teachers, students, parents, and the community.
“According to a study conducted by the Canadian Center for Food Integrity (CCFI), 91% of Canadians feel they know little, very little or nothing about modern agricultural practices, which is a big problem when today’s farmers are trying to build public trust. Our website has direct connections to the Alberta Program of Studies across a variety of grades and subjects and will help bridge the knowledge gap by providing reliable, fact-based information, as it relates to agriculture, canola production, science, and health,” says Roger Chevraux, Chair of Alberta Canola.
A new essential feature of the website is the curriculum connections section that links the already available resources to different grades and subjects as per the Alberta curriculum.
The redesigned site offers a much-improved experience for all users and Alberta Canola looks forward to developing it further to suit everyone’s needs. To view the new website, visit learncanola.com. To provide feedback or comments, please connect via the contact form.
The mission of Alberta Canola is to support the long-term success of canola farmers in Alberta through research, extension, consumer engagement, and advocacy for canola farmers.
