OTTAWA, Feb. 23, 2015 /CNW/ - Egg Farmers of Canada is proud to be this year's Visionary Sponsor of the Forum for Young Canadians.
For a fourth year, Egg Farmers of Canada is lending support to the Forum for Young Canadians, an organization that brings hundreds of talented, ambitious young students from across the country to Ottawa. During their stay in the Nation's Capital, students have the opportunity to learn about the Parliamentary process, meet with political leaders and forge new relationships with other young motivated Canadians.
"Egg Farmers of Canada supports young Canadians who are taking interest in our institutions and who want to be a voice for their generation," said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of EFC. "Forum is a great opportunity for students to learn about what shapes Canadian policies and we are proud to be sponsoring the event this year again."
Egg Farmers of Canada will have the opportunity to discuss agriculture and food production in Canada with the students. Three young egg farmers will also be the keynote speakers at dinners to which Members of Parliament are invited in order to spend time with young leaders from the very communities those Members represent.
"On behalf of the youth that attend Forum and the volunteer Board of Director, we thank Egg Farmers of Canada for their support of the Forum program. They are truly an organization that recognizes and supports Canadian youth and their support of Forum is a testament to this," said Justine Hendricks, Chair of Forum for Young Canadians. "The relationship between our two organizations goes beyond their sponsorship, they believe in the program by contributing expertise, guest speakers and materials for participants as well. We are grateful for their support."
