Indigenous communities, turn of the century settlers, and immigration keep our country strong, especially in the agriculture industry. Canada is more than excited to welcome you to learn how our nation is tackling old and new problems in a venerable industry.
The world congress is set to take place from June 27 to July 3 and will start in Calgary, Alta. — Canada’s fourth most populous city — where we will gather for the opening reception before heading north to Olds, Alta.
Olds College is a hub for agriculture ingenuity and innovation in the heart of the Canadian prairies. With numerous tours about Canadian farm to food experiences, technological advances, and modern farming practices that address the most pressing issues of Canadian and global agriculture, there will be no shortage of stories to pack home with you.
Beyond the amazing agricultural stories, don’t miss this opportunity to have a truly Canadian experience during our Canada Day activities on July 1. Together we will learn about Indigenous history and agriculture followed by a spectacular Canadian meal.

Just like the Canadian agricultural journalism community, our IFAJ Presidium, Lena Johansson, is also excited to welcome you to Canada to share in this amazing experience: “I’m really excited to go to the IFAJ Congress in Alberta this summer. Canada is such an interesting and important agriculture producer, and it has a well-developed and professional agricultural journalism. At an IFAJ Congress you meet people from all over the world who are just as interested as you about cows, crops, pigs, and farming in general. Where else do you have this opportunity?”
