Rural and Farm Safety Programs

Partnering in the community to make a long-term difference.

Ag for Life’s mandate is to deliver educational programming that will serve to improve rural and farm safety for families across the province.

Great farm safety programs already exist in Alberta. Unfortunately, many of these programs are struggling to continue due to a lack of proper sustainable funding; many are only local in nature and can’t be expanded because of limited resources. The result is that good programs don’t become great programs, and great programs can’t be shared with others who would benefit from them.

Through close collaboration with community groups, educators, existing not for profits and other expert resources Ag for Life safety programs reached 25,700 children, youth, and parents in 2016.  The Ag for Life approach is to partner with those successful and in-demand programs that already exist or with organizations that offer new and innovative ideas. Through multi-year funding support, we work to leverage these programs into more scalable and sustainable programs. The approach reduces duplication of programming and connects community leaders to effective programs and practices.
