About AYCA Webinar Series

Agriculture plays a significant role in the Canadian economy. It contributes to economic growth, job creation, exports, and plays a crucial role in addressing food security by ensuring a stable and sufficient food supply. African Community in Canada is increasing, but the representation of African youths in Agriculture is very low. AYCA seeks to help African youths interested in Canadian Agriculture to identify, explore, and assess mentorship and career opportunities by organizing lectures, seminars, and workshops led by experienced and seasoned professionals in the field of agriculture in Canada.

Professors, Researchers, Industry Experts, & Resource Persons 

We are looking for professors, researchers, industry experts, & resource persons willing to share their experience with African undergraduate and graduate students to motivate and guide them in exploring careers opportunities in Canadian Agriculture.
