The Centre will enable ACC to expand its enrolment, offer new programming, and help meet the demand for technical and specialized jobs in the Canadian agriculture industry. The college plans to expand the number of students enrolled in agriculture, environment, and agricultural technology from 300 to 800. “The college has long focused on providing leadership in agriculture and this donation is a significant step toward this major undertaking in expanding training to meet current and emerging labour demands,” said ACC president Mark Frison.
