The Canadian Farm Learning Centre…

is an online tool created to assist farm business owners in furthering their knowledge and understanding of farm financial management matters. The learning centre presents complex financial topics in an easy-to-understand online format that is structured to enhance adult learning.

Farmers are able to work through five separate modules addressing farm legal/tax structures, financial management, succession planning, and wealth management topics.

Once the farm business owner becomes familiar with the topic, they are provided with worksheets and quizzes to expand their knowledge by incorporating their own farm business information.
