The Institute is an active contributor and advocate to the continued success of all types of agriculture in the Comox Valley and acts generally on behalf of its members in all matters incidental to agricultural pursuits and rural development. The Institute strives to serve the needs of the local agricultural community, meeting monthly to identify and address issues of interest and concern to local farms, farmers, and agricultural stakeholders. Members also sit on committees in the wider community, advocating for farmers’ interests at community, municipal, provincial and federal levels. We strive to offer a wealth of opportunities to benefit farmers, farms, other agricultural stakeholders and the local community.
