CAREER EXPECTATIONS

The Fraser Valley ranks number one in the province’s agricultural economy, generating over $1 billion in gross farm receipts each year. In fact, one in five jobs in the Fraser Valley is related to the agricultural sector. And the future looks promising, with demand for BC’s agri-food products on the rise both in local and foreign markets.

Marrying agricultural knowledge and business savvy is a winning mix to enter a diverse industry with a myriad of management opportunities. Your education in both the business and technical aspects of the industry gives you a distinct advantage and equips you to assume a leadership position in a nursery, greenhouse, pest control agency, lab, agri-food business or farm producing livestock, crops, dairy or other food products.
