Prosperity Framework Agriculture Team

The Prosperity Framework is Cape Breton & Mulgrave’s economic development strategy, uniting private sector business leaders, federal and provincial government departments and agencies, First Nations and municipalities as well as educational institutions on sector-specific teams. The Agriculture Team, like all Prosperity Framework teams, seeks to align partners’ priorities to work collaboratively on projects which advance sector growth for the ultimate goal of the region’s economic development.
Activities:
Projects initiated and under consideration include the creation of an award to acknowledge innovation in the agricultural sector, support for the creation of a local food transportation and distribution hub and public education for the sake of inspiring increased participation and investment in the sector.
