To provide means for the Agricultural Biotechnology International Conference (ABIC) Foundation to continue to provide a quality vehicle to promote Canada's agbio achievement and opportunities.
The project will assist the ABIC Foundation connect the vision, mission, priorities and budgets to resources necessary to realize the vision, and meet the priorities as set out in the Strategic Plan dated August 2008. The research aspect of this project will respond to current and emerging issues by engagement with stakeholders across Canada throughout the feasibility study stage either through in person meetings or by telephone, conducted over the period of the contract. The project will actively engage the Saskatchewan and Canadian agbio sector to contribute to future agriculture and agri-food policy directions by keeping their attention to current issues through the interview process.
Developing a Feasibility Study and Case Statement for the ABIC Foundation was necessary to achieve its mission of linking the global science, business, government and development communities to enable the application of sustainable agricultural biotechnologies for the good of all.
ABIC initiated the feasibility study in an effort to answer critical questions regarding its ability to further its development by attracting revenues in addition to those it has traditionally received from its conference activities.
The Foundation continues to work towards positioning Canada's agriculture and food industry at the leading edge to seize new opportunities as they arise.
