“These individuals have dedicated their lives to Canadian agriculture. Their efforts have gone well beyond just doing a job – they have changed the course of the industry,” stated Cam Dahl, President of the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame Association (CAHFA). “In addition, they have worked as mentors to those coming into their fields, helping to ensure regeneration and growth. All of Canada owes them a debt of gratitude and the CAHFA is proud to recognize their contributions with this highest honour.”
The Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame Association honours and celebrates Canadians for outstanding contributions to the agriculture and food industry. Portraits are on display in the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame Gallery located at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. The CAHFA also publicizes the importance of inductee achievements to Canada. The CAHFA was organized in 1960 and is administered by 12 volunteer Board of Directors located across Canada.
