Our Vision

To educate and empower rural Albertans to better manage their safety, health & well-being.

Our Mission

Collaborate with industry stakeholders to promote the safety and overall well-being of all rural individuals through effective safety and health education and training initiatives.

Our History

The Raymond & District Futures Society, operating as the Farm Safety Centre is a charitable organization promoting safe agricultural practices through the development and delivery of educational programs and materials to individuals of all ages throughout rural Alberta.  Agriculture is a major industry in our province and farm families are its most important renewable resource.

In 1991 our organization was incorporated under the Societies Act of Alberta.
Our incorporation number is: 505001545
In 1993 charitable status was granted through the Canada Revenue Agency.
Our registration number is: 890566441RR0001

Since the 1990’s farm safety extension programs have been continuously delivered to rural Albertans.
Detailed delivery information can be found in our “Programs” section. 

The generosity of thousands have made decades long delivery of impactful programs possible.
Detailed contributor information can be found under “Supporters“.
We are grateful for each dollar donated!

Jordan Jensen

Executive Director

I was born in Raymond & raised on my family farm just north of town. Growing up on the farm was a wonderful character-building experience that has shaped me into the person I am today.

After high school, I enrolled in full-time studies at the University of Lethbridge and soon graduated with a bachelor’s degree in International Business Management and Project Management.

In 2014, I was contracted by the Farm Safety Centre to adapt the Australian Sustainable Farm Families program to fit the Alberta context and deliver adapted SFF Alberta workshops to farmers and rural people across Alberta. It has been an exciting and fulfilling challenge that has enabled me to combine my love of farming and my appreciation of farm health & safety with my hard-earned university education.

In 2021, I became the Executive Director and now oversee all operations of the Farm Safety Centre. I am passionate about rural health, well-being, and safety and look forward to the continued opportunity of promoting it throughout our Province.

For more information about the Farm Safety Centre or our programs, please feel free to contact me.

Keylan Kado

Program Manager

I was born in Stettler Alberta and moved all around rural Alberta growing up. My family ended up in Raymond Alberta in 2000 and I have been here ever since. Throughout growing up I have been on and helped on many different farms with friends or summer jobs.

From 2012 to 2016 I attended the University of Lethbridge and received a bachelor’s degree in Nursing.

After graduating I came to work two seasons with The Farm Safety Centre as a nurse for the Sustainable Farm Families Program. Now in 2021, I have come back to fulfill the role of Program Manager for both the Safety Smarts Program and Sustainable Farm Families. I’m excited to take on this new role and to share my appreciation and experiences of a healthy and safe rural Alberta
