Marc de Wit - Making a Difference

picture - Marc de Wit

"I sincerely feel as though I am making the world a better place," says Marc de Wit, an evaluation officer within the CFIA's Fertilizer Section in Ottawa. He is responsible for verifying that fertilizers are safe, efficacious, and properly labelled—a policy-related role he now fulfills thanks to a strong background in agronomics and fieldwork with fertilizers.

Marc also considers himself a plant breeder, forever interested in their growth and well being—so he knows a thing or two about the subject. "If you bring passion to your work, the rest takes care of itself."

Indeed, Marc credits the CFIA for fostering a youthful and forward-thinking environment that encourages employees to develop their skills and further their career. "It is a very progressive organization," he says.
