President’s Message

Caleigh Slits, RBC
President, CAMA Ontario

Thanks for visiting CAMA Ontario, a provincial chapter representing the Canadian Agri-food Marketers Alliance. CAMA is a national network of agri-food marketing professionals representing all sectors of the food value chain with chapters around the country.

Nationally, the organization provides meaningful professional development, networking through digital platforms, the annual in-person Best of CAMA awards gala, and access to the latest trends in agri-food marketing.

Our members are marketing and communications leaders, managers, team members and students, from sectors like seed and crop protection, food and beverage processing, commodity marketing, equipment and manufacturing, livestock, animal health, financial and agri-business services, retail outlets and more.

CAMA Ontario is the organization’s largest chapter, and our members are spread out geographically across our province. Our in-person networking events are often held during large events like farm shows to take advantage of so many agri-marketers being centralized in one place. Since the onset of the pandemic, all chapters have worked hard to develop meaningful, relevant virtual content for its membership across the country to keep members connected and informed of the latest trends and insights.

Our members are dedicated to advancing agri-food marketing through networking, education, sharing knowledge and developing professional skills. Whether you are a recent grad and emerging leader, or a long-time professional, we invite you to join us.
