The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence, was on hand at the AGM on behalf of Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, to announce a federal investment of up to $11.5 million to the Horticulture Cluster under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership. The cluster, led by CHC, will include an additional $6.5 million in contributions from industry, for a total investment of $18 million. 

This important funding allows us to broaden the scope of research for many different fruits and vegetables and address key issues, such as pest management tools, labour, production costs, and variety evaluation.
