Women play a key role on Alberta’s farms, ranches and agribusinesses; however, sometimes their contributions are overlooked. Agriculture Financial Services Corporation (AFSC) is recognizing the women who make a difference in the agriculture industry with our Women in Ag Award.

This annual award acknowledges and honours the passion, dedication and commitment of women in agriculture and agribusiness in Alberta. It also celebrates the growing presence of women in this industry. Each year the award recognizes seven phenomenal individuals – four from anywhere in the province and three from within AFSC – who are improving this industry.
