Inductee Nomination and Selection

Induction into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame is a way of recognizing the contribution of an individual to the development of a specific commodity, a farm organization, the farm community, or to the enhancement of the agricultural industry in Atlantic Canada.


Farmers, those people involved in farm and rural organizations, business persons, Agrologists and scientists are all eligible for induction.

To be considered, an individual must be nominated by a member rural or agricultural organization.


Nominations will be accepted until June 1 of each year. A selection committee, established in each province, reviews the nominations and selects an individual to be honoured in that province each year. The remaining nominations will be carried forward for consideration in each of the subsequent five years pending approval of the nominating organization.


If the individual nominated by an organization is selected, the nominating organization will be responsible for the cost of the photography, duplication and framing of the portrait of the inductee.

A high quality black and white, head and shoulders, negative or high quality digital version of the photo is preferred. A suitable photograph of the individual may be acceptable. The Hall of Fame office will bill the organization once the induction ceremony is complete.

Guest list

The nominating organization may also help the inductee and their family provide a listing of the persons, complete with mailing addresses, who should be invited to the ceremony honouring the Agricultural Hall of Fame award recipients. This list should be sent to the office by the end of August.
