CAAR extends its sincere congratulations to the six 2019 inductees into the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame. Their outstanding contributions to this industry have made a lasting impact on the lives of many who rely on agriculture for their livelihoods. 

From Mitch Rezansoff, Executive Director of CAAR:

Trusted adviser status cannot be claimed – it must be earned.
