The University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy is opening a new centre focused on the growth and sustainability of agri-food and agribusiness.

The Simpson Centre for Agricultural and Food Innovation and Public Education will research public policies in four areas with a focus on Western Canada: trade policy, environment and climate change, agriculture as a major resource sector, and food and agriculture technology.

The centre is named after Calgary rancher and businessman John Simpson, head of the CANA Group of Companies, a family-owned private construction services and development company.
