Annual Dairy Policy Conference

About the Event

Mark your calendars and join more than 200 dairy industry leaders, colleagues and peers as we chart a new course for dairy farming in an ever-changing political and economic climate at DFC’s Annual Policy Conference.

This year’s theme Dairy Farming Forward looks at how our sector is responding to changing consumption patterns and attitudes towards dairy. Join us as we examine how dairy is evolving to cement our place in a robust, modern Canadian economy.

Hear from a diverse range of experts and engaging speakers on how we can respond to the challenges facing our sector and maximize on our opportunities. Sessions and topics will include:

  • Award-winning Toronto Star political columnist Chantal Hébert on the minority government and what it means for dairy farmers.

  • Embracing innovation and environmental sustainability.

  • Changing dynamics in the dairy supply chain.

  • And more!

Delegates will include dairy farmers, dairy processors, senior Canadian government officials and other agricultural and dairy stakeholders.
