It wouldn’t be the CAAR Conference without CAAR’s Pro-Ag Investments Auction! Always a conference highlight, this annual event supports programming and advocacy, while helping to keep membership fees low.

The Pro-Ag Investments Auction is CAAR’s only fundraiser, contributing up to 10 per cent of the association’s annual revenue. Proceeds from the auction directly support CAAR’s advocacy efforts and a diverse range of industry-strengthening initiatives.

You can show your support by participating in the CAAR Pro-Ag Investments Auction at the 2018 CAAR Conference as a bidder, a donor or both!

Bid and Buy at the Auction

Bid against your friends and colleagues on dozens of incredible products and know that every dollar you spend goes directly to CAAR.

You can expect to see Callaway XR golf clubs, a $1,000 SeCan Certified Seed voucher and two $5,000 Western Producer advertising vouchers, among many more great items.

The generosity of our members at the 2017 Pro-Ag Investments Auction allowed CAAR to:

  • participate on behalf of our members in more than 30 industry events, regulatory consultations and committee meetings over the past year;
  • award scholarships to students at the University of Manitoba and Olds College in Alberta; and
  • fund research initiatives, such as the impact of increased ammonia tank testing frequency, to support CAAR’s lobbying positions.

Last year’s auction was a great success and raised nearly $85,000! With your help, we can make this year’s auction bigger and better than ever.

Donate to the Auction

Make a donation (anything from crop inputs to flat screen TVs to fishing trips) and join us at the event to watch the bids soar! You can also make a direct donation and we’ll make sure to acknowledge your generous support at the event. Contact Lisa Defoort at This email address is being protected from spambots.
