Nominate a farmer

Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers Program is designed to recognize young farmers that exemplify excellence in their profession. Eligible nominees must be farm operators between the ages of 18 and 39 who derive a minimum of two-thirds of their income from their farm operations. Each year one farming couple is selected from each of the program’s seven Regional Recognition Events to represent their respective region at the National Recognition Event.



Are you passionate about agriculture in Canada? The Outstanding Young Farmers Memorial Scholarship supports future generations in the pursuit of their passion. Two $1,000 scholarships are awarded annually to students pursuing post secondary education in agriculture.  The annual application deadline is June 30th.
