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.

Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers Program (OYF) is a unique program designed to recognize farmers and farm couples who exemplify excellence in their profession. The program is open to farmers or couples who derive at least two-thirds of their income from farming operations.

Ontario is one of seven regions. Each region holds an event where local nominees are judged on specific criteria. All regional winners represent their areas at an annual national event where they compete to be named Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers.
