Visit and explore the world of agriculture

In order to address the shortage of agricultural workers in the region, the Centre de services scolaires de la Vallée-des-Tisserands and its Centre de formation professionnelle des Moissons-et-Pointe-du-Lac, in collaboration with the Fédération de l’UPA de la Montérégie, are launching a first-ever exploratory visit in agriculture.

“The needs and challenges in terms of manpower remain important in the agricultural sector. This activity is a perfect opportunity for Montérégie farms to attract people seeking employment in agriculture and to create beneficial matches,” said Jean Boulet, Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity, noting that the sector “is full of stimulating and interesting jobs.”

Of the four stays offered during the year, two will focus on animal production and two others on horticulture.
The first trip is scheduled for June 17-18 for eight to ten participants. Those interested in agriculture are invited to discover the related trades through a visit to the Anderson farm in Très-Saint-Sacrement, where participants will be able to attend concrete activities related to animal production, free of charge.

The visit will include an explanation of agricultural life, a tour of the farm, a presentation on the work, and an experimentation component. Those interested in registering for this first exploratory visit related to animal production can do so online by completing the interactive form available on the produistonavenir.com website. Registration for a second exploratory visit, which will focus on horticulture, will take place at a later date. Full details on the event is available on the event’s Facebook page and on the website.
