The National Farmers Union annual 3-day National Convention brings together farmers from all across Canada to discuss and learn about the important agricultural issues of the day. The public is invited to hear the keynote address, delivered by a well-known speaker on Thursday evening. The program includes a series of presentations and panel discussions, elections of national officers, reports from elected officials and caucuses, as well as debate and voting on resolutions which become the NFU's positions on public policy matters. Special meetings of youth, women and members involved in international cooperation are also included in the Convention agenda. The NFU National Convention is the highlight of the organization’s year, both the culmination of the previous year’s work and the starting point for the coming year.
Everyone is welcome to attend NFU Conventions, whether you are a family farm member, associate member, visitor or media. There is no advance registration - daily or full convention fees are payable at the door.

What is the NFU?
The National Farmers Union is a direct-membership voluntary organization made up of Canadian farm families who share common goals. It is the only farm organization incorporated through an Act of Parliament.
NFU members believe that the problems facing farmers are common problems, and that farmers producing diverse products must work together to advance effective solutions. The NFU works toward the development of economic and social policies that will maintain the family farm as the primary food-producing unit in Canada.
