CAN (ON): 2017-2018 AAC board of directors announced

The Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) has announced the 2017-2018 board of directors. The election for the new board took place at the 22nd Annual General Meeting held on December 7, 2017 in Guelph.

The AAC’s 64 member organizations annually elect 16 directors to serve on the AAC board. They are joined by two, non-voting, liaisons from the federal and provincial government. The AAC board has approved over $276 million in federal and provincial funding to support over 3,450 projects since 1995.

“The AAC is a strategic enabler, and it’s clearly evident how the projects funded have played – and continue to play - a significant role in raising the standard and profile of Ontario's agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector,” says Kelly Duffy, AAC Chair, “I remain enthusiastic and optimistic about the council's future and know that continued investment in our sector will produce long-lasting benefits that will have a positive impact on future generations of Ontarians.”

  • Chair: Kelly Duffy, Agri-business/Retail/Food Processor
