    What is GEN AG?

    GEN AG is a unique career exploration program for high school students. In groups, students will compete in provincial marketing competitions for a chance to win $500 for their school and be profiled on the AITC Canada website and social media!

                  "I learned that there are many career opportunities in agriculture other than farming and business."
