Farm Credit Canada welcomes you to the 2018 Islands Agriculture Show

Welcome to the Islands Ag Show. There are 10 conference sessions, including the FCC-sponsored keynote address by Kevin Stewart, creator and host of award-winning AGVISION on CTV that you don’t want to miss. You can also visit our booth to speak with our knowledgeable staff regarding all of our products and services.

 

If you’ve ever needed ag financing on the island, you’ve had a trusted choice for the last 20 years. Farm Credit Canada is a federal Crown corporation, and the only national financial institution solely dedicated to agriculture.

 

“We take a long-term view; we know the ups and downs in the industry and we have had an unwavering commitment to agriculture since we opened our doors in 1959,” says Michael Hoffort, FCC President and CEO.

 

FCC has a team of 1,800 knowledgeable employees operating out of 100 offices in mainly rural communities across Canada. Duncan’s office has four staff members, all with ag knowledge and ag backgrounds.

 

FCC provides flexible, competitively priced financing, farm management software, and information and knowledge specifically designed for the agriculture and agri-food industry. We work to add value beyond loan transactions by offering free learning programs and resources like FCC Forum, webinars, videos and newsletters.

 

FCC also makes a difference in rural communities by supporting projects that make positive community changes through funds such as AgriSpirit, FCC Expression, FCC Aboriginal Student Empowerment and FCC 4-H Club. You can visit fcc-fac.ca for more information.

 

Last year local FCC staff participated in a number of charity projects including a food drive for the local food bank, Salvation Army collection and events involving the Rotary Club and 4H.

 

Many of our customers on the Island own small- to medium-sized agriculture operations that span a wide variety of sectors, and our Duncan staff ensure they know your business.

 

“Our business is built on strong customer relationships, knowing our customer’s business and ensuring they have the support they need through every business cycle,” says Hoffort.

 

FCC serves the industry that feeds the world and supports farmers, agribusinesses and agri-food operators and the important work they do. Stop by our booth and see what we can do for you.
