A recent study that found roughly four jobs exist for every Ontario Agricultural College graduate made national news, with OAC dean Rene Van Acker being interviewed by the Globe and Mail and BNN.

Van Acker said the agri-food industry is growing and employers are looking for trained, highly skilled workers. U of G provides a majority of the graduates for this sector in the province, he said, adding that OAC plans to strengthen liaison efforts with schools and connect with food companies to create programs geared to industry.
