This online survey has been developed to help the Ontario Agricultural College (OAC) of the University of Guelph plan for the skills and educational requirements needed to help Ontario's agriculture and food sectors thrive.

 We are seeking input from agriculture and food sector employers and organizations to identify and evaluate human resource needs in Ontario's agriculture and food sectors for the next five years in relation to education programs offered by OAC. The data collected will build on the previous Planning For Tomorrow project conducted by OAC in 2011/2012 Click here to view the previous report.

 Established in 1874, the Ontario Agricultural College is a founding college of the University of Guelph, Canada’s Food University. OAC is Canada's largest and most renowned agricultural college and a global leader in education, research and service focusing on food, agriculture, the environment and communities. With campuses in Guelph and Ridgetown, Ontario, OAC provides several areas of study including: food science, agriculture, animal science, business and economics, environment, equine, horticulture, landscape architecture, plant science, rural communities and planning, turfgrass management and veterinary technology.
