Who We Are

Vision

Safe and sustainable agriculture where healthy Canadian farm communities thrive.

Mission

To engage with community partners to promote safety and health in agriculture by providing leadership, support and resources.

About CASA

In an average year, Canada mourns the loss of over 60 adults and children due to agricultural fatalities. Canada’s agricultural sector is one of the most hazardous industries in which to work.

Producer groups, non-profits, government bodies, industry and researchers formed what is now the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) in 1993 to respond to issues of health and safety in agriculture.

As a national, non-profit organization, CASA promotes farm safety in the agricultural sector. CASA works with partners in government, business, and farming organizations across the country to support initiatives that equip producers, their families and their workers with the information and tools needed to make farms a safe place to live, work and play.

CASA is governed by a seven-person Board of Directors drawn from a membership base that includes individuals, organizations, governments and businesses.

Our Values

  • We believe Safety and Health in Agriculture is a Priority.
  • We believe in Respect and Integrity.

CASA’s mandate is multifaceted, and includes:

  • Provide national leadership on farm health and safety issues by connecting with stakeholders through presentations, tradeshows, online forums, and hosting an annual conference.  
  • Engaging in agricultural health and safety and sustainable agriculture by participating in sustainability roundtables. 
  • Supporting on-farm agricultural health and safety through the Mental Health Hub and developing and promoting online courses. 
  • Supporting the safety and health of women in agriculture through research and resources. 
  • Supporting the safety and health of rural children & youth through Kids’ FarmSafe Week. 
  • Promoting farm safety education for youth through our support of the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® program.

  • Collecting, analyzing and disseminating Canadian agricultural fatality data 
  • Providing financial support for adaptive technology to injured farmers through the Back to Ag Program
