Happening once a year, the Farm Transition Appreciation Day (FTADay) has become a venue for farmers across the country to come together. 

It is the time of the year to celebrate the farmers’ progress and ensure farming’s future in Canada. 

On January 10, 2023, a national campaign with the theme “The Dawn of a New Generation” will take place. For more details, you may visit

Attendees will share their transition success stories and tips, and provide advice to further strengthen excellence in agriculture. 

Learning events will also be offered as a way to support the next generations of farmers. 

With about 75% of farms in Canada to be handed over to new owners within the next decade, this annual event will help secure Canadian farmers’ legacy.
