The Agri Skills Program (formerly Canadian Agricultural Skills Service) is a federally funded program aimed to provide Prince Edward Island farmers and spouses with access to skills training which has the potential to increase farm profitability, and to enable farm families to pro-actively manage business risks, and be better positioned to adopt new technologies for the farm.
Funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), the Agri Skills Program is co-administered by the Prince Edward Island Department of Agriculture and Forestry and Holland College..
For further information about the program, including eligibility, requirements, and how to apply, visit the Department of Agriculture website or contact the Provincial Coordinator at (902) 566-9653. For delivery of SKILLS services such as training proposals and the development of Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) please contact Sonia O’Connor by email.
