“Through this exciting new competition, we’re bringing together the best of Canada’s digital technology, agriculture and agri-food sectors to create new solutions and opportunities in a fast-changing global market. By doing so, we’re ensuring Canadians are well positioned to lead and create jobs in the digital economy for middle-class families.” – Jean-Claude Poissant, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
