Education & Training

A workforce of well-trained employees ploughs the ground for high performance on your farm! To retain workers, reduce turnover costs, and save time, it is critical to set up your employees to succeed by ensuring they receive proper training from the start.

Farm and Workforce Development aims to ensure that the Nova Scotia agricultural workforce has skilled labour by providing a variety of training and workshop opportunities. Ongoing training and skill development helps employees to acquire new skills and sharpen existing ones, leading to better job performance and increased productivity. While return on investment is hard to measure, the benefits to both the employer and employee make the cost and time a worthwhile investment.

There are many opportunities, programs, and funding supports available to meet your business needs.
