LFS Events & Visits

If you’ve ever dreamed of helping remote communities get equal access to water, feel compelled to stand up for animal rights, or inspired to share your passion for a sustainable food system with the next generation, the Faculty of Land and Food Systems (LFS) may be the right Faculty for you.

To learn more about LFS and to see if it’s the right fit for you, we invite you to visit beautiful Vancouver and check out an on campus event for prospective students. Our Academic Advisors visit cities to talk about LFS; see if we’re coming to your community. We are also attending events for high school and post-secondary counsellors.
