The focus of the UNBC Agriculture and Climate Change Research Forum was to share information about innovative research, programs and initiatives that will benefit northern agriculture producers through collaborative, applied research. More than 40 people attending the forum throughout the day, and more than 30 people attended the evening reception at Northern Lights Estate Winery. The participants included UNBC faculty and students, primary producers and industry stakeholders, representatives from municipal, regional and provincial government, and funding agency representatives.
Throughout the day, various opportunities were shared, and information was requested to be sent out to the participants. Presentations from the Forum can be made available upon request.
