Investing in BC Farmland  

Fraser Valley Farm Advisor

Lunch & Learn Series

Sponsored by:  

Josh Sawchuk, President, Manulife Farmland Services


As the President of Manulife Farmland Services Canada (MFSC), Josh oversees the acquisition, leasing and management of Canadian farmland, as well as the forming of mutually beneficial relationships with innovative local farm operators looking to expand their operations.

How we can help your clients


A land acquisition by MFSC can provide the funds to scale up operations, acquire more ground, modernize your clients' equipment, or invest in things within their operation to further grow their business.

Retirement and Succession

MFSC can pave the way for a smoother transition, providing the money your clients need to retire and stability for their successor.

Reduced Tax Liability

We’ll work with your client's tax professional and analyze options to enhance their tax strategy and reduce their liability.

Strengthen Balance Sheet

The additional liquidity from a sale can enhance your clients' balance sheet, making them more attractive to lenders.

Turning Equity into Liquidity

We’re always in the market to provide your clients with the liquidity they need to make capital improvements, change their ownership structure or deploy that capital elsewhere.

A Strong Alliance

By adopting a landlord/tenant relationship, we can partner with your clients to pursue a mutual plan for the growth of their operation.
