**Please note if the Covid-19 environment evolves with increased case numbers and any resulting changes to provincial rules regarding face to face gatherings, we will move CTEAM Modules 2 and 3 online as needed to ensure the safety of our instructors and participants.**
CTEAM is designed specifically for producers and ranchers. Through a combination of online delivery and face to face format, you will develop and implement your own strategic and operations plans for your farm.
