The Agriculture Centre of Excellence at the University of the Fraser Valley promotes and champions a network of innovation in agriculture education, technology and research. The Centre facilitates knowledge transfer by acting as a coordinating hub to bring together expertise from established institutions and organizations in areas of plant and animal production, food safety, agri-business, policy, and technology development. Research and training activities are conducted with partners from other post-secondary education institutions, business, industry, municipal, provincial and federal governments, and organizations from the non-profit sector.
The Centre also serves as the Secretariat of the BC Agriculture and Seafood Research, Education and Extension Network, which is a consortium of post-secondary educational institutions, governments, and industry associations.
UFV's Agriculture Centre of Excellence and the Centre for Food and Farmland Innovation are joining forces to launch the Food and Agriculture Research Institute.Learn more
