The Enterprise Machine Intelligence Learning Initiative (EMILI) and Assiniboine Community College (ACC) are working together on ag-tech innovation and education.

The two hope to increase digital skills to address labour shortages in the ag sector. 

Studies show that Canada’s ag sector could be facing a shortage of 123,000 workers by 2030.

RBC's Farmer 4.0 Report suggests that the advanced technologies 
emerging across agriculture and sub-sectors will change the skills needed in the sector over the next decade.

EMILI and ACC will be working on the development of data literacy training programs, increasing work-integrated learning opportunities, and testing new technologies to ensure they work on the farm.

In recent years, the two have been focused on the potential of digital agriculture in the prairies.
