This Canadian Agricultural Safety Week, UFA challenges our members to make sure their families are an #agsafefamily.

For more than a century, UFA has supported and advocated for our members in their shared commitment to feed Canada and the world.  We know the work is demanding and that it can be dangerous. Our members live and work with their families on their farms, and safety must be proactively embraced by the entire family, every day. 

It begins with conversation, and we've got some ideas and resources to get you started:

  • Check out our Farm Safety Guide, which offers best practices and checklists for small farms and ranches, and is a perfect conversation starter.
  • For members with little ones on their farm or ranch, we're excited to share our partner Ag for Life's Family Farm Colouring Contest! Kids can enter the contest by downloading the colouring sheet, and following the submission guidelines. The contest is open until April 20 when three lucky entries will be selected to win prize packs that include a $50 UFA Farm and Ranch Supply gift certificate. UFA is proud to be a founding partner of Ag for Life as part of our commitment to excellence in stewarding our land, natural resources and people.
