As a national, non-profit, CASA works to promote farm safety in the agricultural sector to address a harsh reality – in an average year, Canada mourns the loss of over 100 adults and children due to preventable agriculture-related incidents.

Connecting, Learning, and Taking Action
The CASA Conference is a vehicle for partners dedicated to reducing agriculture-related injuries and building an industry that is healthy, safe, and sustainable to come together to engage with experts, learn about new programs, network, and connect with like-minded individuals.

Farm Safety Doesn’t Just Happen
It takes dedication, passion, and commitment. You can help. By supporting CASA’s Annual Conference, you are playing an important role in keeping farmers, farm families, farm workers, and farming communities safe.
