Next Fertilizer Canada Event

Parliamentary Forum – Ottawa, ON – Postponed to October 2020

October 27, 2020 - October 28, 2020

Registration is currently on hold for Fertilizer Canada’s Parliamentary Forum.

We have tentatively postponed the forum to take place on October 27-28, 2020. 

The Forum provides members with the opportunity to meet with Members of Parliament, Senators, and other government officials to discuss issues of importance to the industry, provide policy feedback, and establish connections with politicians. Your participation in this event supports the association in achieving success through our advocacy efforts. It is also an opportunity to help bolster Canada’s fertilizer industry as a major contributor to the country’s economy, a leader in environmental stewardship and product safety and security, all of which are critical to the success of Canadian farmers and agriculture sector as a whole.

Our preliminary Parliamentary Forum agenda will be available at a later date
