Who We Are

The Nanaimo-Cedar Farmers Institute (NCFI) is a registered, non-profit society comprised of voluntary members and directors who live and farm in the Nanaimo-Cedar-Yellow Point area on Vancouver IslandBritish Columbia.

The aims and objects of the Institute are:

  • To improve conditions of rural life, so that settlement may be permanent and prosperous:
  • To promote the theory and practice of agriculture by lectures, essays, the circulation of information and other educational methods, and to stimulate interest by exhibitions, prizes, and other means:
  • To arrange on behalf of its members for the purchase, distribution, or sale of commodities, supplies, or products, and generally to act on their behalf in all matters incidental to agricultural pursuits:
  • To promote social intercourse, mutual hopefulness, and the diffusion of knowledge and to make new settlers welcome.
