This year’s Members Forum was also host to the launch of a new initiative: Members Perspective, a group project that delegates worked on throughout the entirety of the conference, then presented on the final day. First, delegates picked a topic from a pre-determined list (curated by 4-H Canada staff in partnership with our Youth Advisory Committee). Topics included Sustainable Careers in Agriculture, Body Positivity, and Breaking the Stigma of the Agriculture Sector.

About McDonald’s Canada

In 1967, Canada welcomed the first McDonald's restaurant to Richmond, British Columbia. Today, McDonald's Restaurants of Canada Limited has become part of the Canadian fabric, serving more than one million guests every day. In both franchised and corporate-owned restaurants, nearly 100,000 people are employed from coast to coast to coast, and more than 90 per cent of McDonald's 1,400 Canadian restaurants are locally owned and operated by independent franchisees. Of the almost $1 billion spent on food, more than 85 per cent is purchased from suppliers in Canada. For more information on McDonald's Canada, visit mcdonalds.ca.
