The Parkland Institute and the National Farmers Union (NFU) invite you for a discussion on the future of farmland in Alberta on Tuesday, June 14, from 7 pm to 8:30 pm.

This virtual event will mark the launch of Parkland’s new research report, Finance in the Fields: Investors, Lenders, Farmers, and the Future of Farmland in Alberta, by Katherine Aske.

We start with a short presentation by Katherine Aske, who will provide an overview of the process of financialization that has been changing the landscape of farming in our province.

Katherine will be followed by a three-person panel that will comment on Aske’s report and discuss issues such as land access and ownership, farmland tenure, and concentration. A Q&A session closes the program.

The report Finance in the Fields: Investors, Lenders, Farmers, and the Future of Farmland in Alberta will be available for download on Parkland’s website on the morning of June 14.
