Through educational programs, the development of educational resources, and participation at conferences or within the classroom, Alberta Canola brings awareness to the benefits of canola, the necessity of producers, and the countless agricultural job opportunities. Students across all grades and applicable subjects should be able to access effective classroom resources on agricultural topics.

Agriculture is one of the largest global economic drivers—and the 20 million acres of canola grown in Canada drives $29.9 billion in economic activity. Educating students from K-12 about agriculture and connecting curriculum to science, math, social studies, English language arts, environmental studies, and courses under the Career and Technology Studies sets the next generation up to meet the demand for an experienced agricultural workforce and to enter promising careers as producers, agrologists, researchers or equipment technicians. We are working to open conversations with the Ministry of Education to build agriculture-focused curriculum in the Alberta Program of Studies, and we will continue to promote innovation, sustainability, and global food security.

Learn Canola

Learn Canola is a newly designed, intuitive website for educators to access helpful books, learning resources and links to a wide range of topics relating to canola, and facts on sustainable canola farming, cooking, and canola byproducts. It’s also a great tool to find activities for children from K-12 that connect canola and agriculture with curriculum across numerous fields of study.

Attending conferences, professional development days, career fairs, and aggie day events are opportunities for Alberta Canola to connect with students, teachers, and parents through conversations, presentations, and resource development; events such as the CTECH Conference, the ATA Science Teachers Council Conference, EPIC Day in Lethbridge, Innisfail Aggie Days, and Outstanding in the Filed in Brooks.
