Canadian Agricultural Safety Association
CASA was established in 1993 in response to an identified need for a national farm safety
networking and coordinating agency to address problems of illness, injuries and accidental
death in farmers, their families and agricultural workers.  Since then, its mission has been to
improve the health and safety conditions of those that live, and or, work on Canadian farms.
