Links, Profiles, and Podcasts… Oh My!
The Soil to Sky portal was launched on June 26, 2006 by Agriculture and Food Council in an effort to build the beginnings of a central exchange centre for agriculture and food information, links, and career concepts. Since that time we’ve responded to our visitors and improved the way information is collected and connected.
Are you interested in science? We’re willing to bet you can’t even begin to imagine how many possible career paths in research related to food, animal health and safety, or even the environment are out there waiting for motivated people like you. Or, are you intrigued by finance, investing or business? The movement of goods and services related to agriculture and food products in Canada feeds millions, is worth billions, and makes up a huge part of Canada’s economy. Maybe you’re looking to learn a trade, a skill, or work outdoors? From primary production to working with heavy-duty machinery, the skills and people that drive agriculture and food related jobs are often linked to wide-open spaces, family-oriented hours, and a great quality of life.
Soil to Sky wants to help you find the career that fits your goals best. Browse our ever-growing collection of profiles, visit our many links to industry, government, and education options — and see what kind of career is waiting for you in the agriculture and food industry.
