Details

Recent alumni, who graduated in the last 5 years from OAC programs, and "soon-to-be" OAC graduates are invited to a special "Planning for Tomorrow" evening to discuss the transition from student life to career life.

This year we launched the Planning for Tomorrow 2.0 project, an update of the previous study conducted in 2011 to determine the projected needs for HQP in the agriculture and food sector in Ontario. The results from the study 2011 study confirmed a significant gap between the supply of graduates from OAC programs and demands of the agri-food sectors, with demand exceeding supply by as much as 3:1 for programs such as the Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.

This will be an informal event that will provide the project team with an opportunity to collect feeback on the challenges, opportunities and skills developed through all levels (diploma, undergraduate, graduate, PhD) of OAC programs. This is also a great opportunity to meet and network with fellow alumni while helping to inform the project through conversation and discussion. 

Appetizers, pizza and a drink ticket will be provided to all attendees. Please get in touch if you have any dietary restrictions. Feel free to drop in anytime between 5:30 and 7:00 pm.
