Research chairs


Our industry’s future is in good hands

Egg Farmers of Canada supports research in areas that will shape the future of egg farming in Canada. As part of our commitment, we have launched a research chair program focused specifically on the egg industry.

Our research chairs are thought leaders in their fields and were selected for their commitment to research and innovation. As chairholders, they help establish centres of research excellence at their institutions and work with leading national and international experts in the field, as well as top graduate and undergraduate students.
