Justine Hendricks named president and CEO of Farm Credit Canada


Justine Hendricks has been appointed the new president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Farm Credit Canada (FCC).

Hendricks has held various positions at Export Development Canada (EDC) over the past 16 years, and was named EDC’s senior vice-president and chief corporate sustainability officer, of sustainability business and enablement in 2019. She also designed and executed EDC’s Net Zero 2050 strategy.

As CEO of FCC, Hendricks will drive forward the corporation’s mandate of supporting the sector, by providing financial and advisory services, expanding access to capital, and enhancing its products and services, says Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

“We have broken another glass ceiling with the arrival of Justine Hendricks at the head of Farm Credit Canada. Her skills in finance, her expertise in sustainable development and her collaborative leadership makes her an ideal choice for this position,” says Bibeau.

Hendricks, the first female president and CEO in the history of FCC, will begin her new role on January 30, 2023.

She replaces Michael Hoffort, who stepped down in June of this year.
