About Us

We are a not-for-profit, member-based organization that defends the rights and advocates on behalf of the English-Speaking agricultural community across Quebec.

Our head office is in Longueuil, Quebec.  We keep our finger on the pulse of Quebec farming by communicating with our local branches, through our newspaper, local meetings, and correspondence.  Volunteers serve on our provincial Board of Directors and are also links to local issues and challenges.

QFA has close ties with many provincial and national farming organizations including the Union des producteurs agricoles, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and Quebec 4-H,  as well as education and research institutions such as Macdonald and Kemptville Colleges.

Our monthly newspaper, the Quebec Farmers’ Advocate, is read by over 3,000 producers, government officials and researchers.
