Christian Michaud – Farming and Future for N. B.
Mr. Michaud, President of the Agricultural Alliance NB, agricole du N.-B. leads us through the potential for growing our economy through farming. Key elements are: our ability to develop new farmers, (much like I. T. develops new programmers); role of government support; climate changes; access to markets; and the business of being a farm.
Christian says it best, “My job is feeding people. That is satisfying.”

President, Agricultural Alliance of N. B. / agricole due N.-B.
The Agricultural Alliance of New Brunswick (AANB) is the voice of this province’s farmers. And it’s never been stronger or more unified. That’s because in 2006, two groups – the Agriculture Producers’ Association and the Federation des agriculteurs et agricultrices francophones du Nouveau Brunswick – merged to form the AANB – a grassroots, bilingual organization of farmers working for farmers.
Now, as one strong, dynamic and united voice, the Agricultural Alliance is making a significant difference in the lives of and the prosperity of New Brunswick farmers. Since its inception, the Alliance has already achieved significant progress on a number of critical issues impacting the industry.
