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.

The AgSector Program aims to ensure skilled labour in the Nova Scotia agricultural workforce by providing a variety of training and workshop opportunities. Ongoing training and skill development allows employees to acquire new skills, sharpen existing ones, perform better, and increase 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 support available to meet your business needs. If you cannot find what you are looking for, get in touch at agsector@nsfa-fane.ca and we will work together to find something that meets your needs!
