CASA will hold its 23rd annual conference and AGM October 3 - 5, 2017 at the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel and the Edmonton Expo Centre in Edmonton, AB.

The 2017 theme is AgSafety - Make it a record year!

We've lined up an interactive program kicking off with farmers sharing why they can’t always practise what they preach and safety experts offering proven tools to develop safer work practices!  

And leaving no stone unturned, the conference keynote focuses on marijuana - the health and safety implications of its production, handling and use.

Speakers will expose safety concerns around evolving and emerging ag technologies from drones and autonomous equipment to needle-less injections. Farmers and safety experts will share challenges and solutions.

There's also a panel exploring employer/employee responsibilities for safety and health. And lots more! That’s Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Thursday, participants move from the Coast Edmonton Plaza Hotel in downtown Edmonton to the Edmonton Expo Centre choosing one of two half-day workshops. One features a short course on developing a farm emergency plan.  The other focuses on brainstorming new themes for Canadian Ag Safety Week 2019 - 21. The conference wraps with lunch and a demonstration of CASA’s new BeGrainSafe mobile training unit.

Check out the program. It’s informative and interactive.
