Effective training resources are key to the ongoing development of the Canadian pork industry.

Through the Canadian Pork Council’s Canadian Swine Training Development Project, bilingual training resources will be made available to all Canadian pork producers

The project includes the consolidation of existing training tools, the review of their quality and accuracy, their translation, as well as the development of new resources and tools identified as priorities by the Canadian pork sector.


  • Minimize duplication of efforts of provinces by establishing a network of Canadian organizations engaged in the development of publicly available pork producer training
  • Engage subject matter experts across Canada in the development and review of training resources to ensure the highest quality
  • Identify high quality training resources that already exist and are appropriate for national distribution
  • Develop new resources that the Canadian pork sector deems as high priorities
  • Ensure the training resources engage trainees in a way that maximizes comprehension and knowledge retention

The participation of a network of Canadian organizations engaged in the development of publicly available training resources is essential for the success of this project.

Members of this network will share information about the training projects they are considering or developing, and their services could be retained to develop other training resources through this project.

The Training Resources Coordinator will work with a Staff Review Team to establish and review priorities, plans, content and resources. These drafts will be further reviewed by pork producers and veterinary representatives on the Training Review Committee. Topic-Specific Working Groups will be established to complete the development of prioritized training resources.

Training resources such as posters, videos, presentations and documents will be developed and reviewed between October 2019 and March 2023.

This project is funded by the AgriAssurance Program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP), a federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
