Our Mission: To discover, celebrate and recognize progress and excellence in Canadian agriculture.

Our Vision: To be the premiere awards program to identify excellence in Canadian agriculture.

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.


Many thanks to our generous Regional Sponsors in 2019
