Canada's agriculture ministers are meeting in Guelph, Ontario this week, with some virtual participation as well.

Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP) President Bill Campbell expects a variety of topics to be discussed.

"Very recently, lots of conversation about climate change and agriculture and how that will fit in the equation. I believe it is one of the priority agendas for this current government. How will agriculture fit in with that component. We've been having ongoing discussions with regards to Business Risk Management and what the new suite of programs will look like."

Campbell commented further on discussions surrounding the Next Agricultural Policy Framework.

"We've had numerous discussions provincially and federally through CFA, with regards to what this new program should entail. It will be interesting to see what comes out of this meeting as to what the provinces and the federal government's vision is for the new Business Risk Management."

Canada's Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau tweeted that topics of discussion at the meetings will include sustainable agriculture, emission reduction, business risk management, opening of new markets, science and innovation, labour, biosecurity, and mental health.
