Farm Credit Canada (FCC) announces Gil Miner will oversee its Atlantic operations, following the retirement of his predecessor Faith Matchett.

Gil began his career at FCC in 2008 in Truro, N.S., as a relationship manager after working for 19 years in various roles at a Canadian chartered bank. Prior to his current position, he was the Atlantic senior director and has led a variety of teams at FCC. Born and raised in Eastern Ontario, Gil met his wife Kim while studying at McGill University’s Macdonald campus, where he earned a degree in animal science. He worked for five years with an animal feed company before joining a chartered bank as an agrologist.

Gil lives near Moncton and will lead the Atlantic team of 30 employees from FCC’s Moncton office.

“My vision for FCC in Atlantic is to continue to grow and evolve with the industry by building on our great relationships, understanding our customers’ needs and delivering value,” Miner said. “We will continue to be an industry leader and support all sectors and all sizes of enterprises at all stages of maturity. Faith has left FCC Atlantic in great shape, and I look forward to meeting farm and business operators who work hard every day to put food on our tables.”


Faith, a renowned speaker across the country, reflected on her 22 years with FCC.

“I believe FCC is really important to the industry,” she said. “We have an important role for customers and non-customers. We offer suggestions on loan structure, provide feedback on projections and results, advisory services and ongoing education to all in the agriculture, food and aquaculture industry. The business of food production is going to change faster than ever with technology, but one thing won’t change – FCC will be here through all business cycles.”
