Handing Over the Reins-Succession Planning for the Organic Farm Workshop
Succession planning is a very important topic on any farm as many farmers are ageing. Statistics Canada reports that 92 per cent of Canadian farms have no written transition plan ready for when the current operator retires. (Adrees Latif/Reuters).
This workshop will address the ‘soft issues’ (e.g. navigating family relationships, determining what is fair, etc.) as well as the technical issues (e.g. finance, taxes, etc.) that need to be considered when preparing your farm succession plan). The program includes speakers from Farm Credit Canada, the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors and a producer panel to provide information about the different models that organic farmers have adopted to transition their farming operations to the next generation. Full program will be added closer to the date.
Date: November 26 from 8:00am-12:00pm
Location: Queensbury Convention Centre, Room #4, Evraz Place
1700 Elphinestone Street, Regina, SK
