This contest is for new farm entrepreneurs who, through their professional skills and management qualities, stand apart with a profile of excellence.
To win: one $5,000 grant and two $2,500 grants
The aim of the Tournez-vous vers l'excellence! Contest is to showcase the individual contribution of entrepreneurs. Note that only one person may present an application per operation, even if the operation has two associates with equal shares.
FIRA will award a $1,500 grant to one of 10 finalists who will have distinguished themselves by the relevance of their training, as well as the importance of the guidance and/or mentorship they received to the success of their business project.
Application deadline: May 19, 2017
The winners will be announced in the framework of the Colloque Gestion (Business convention) of the Centre de référence en agriculture et agroalimentaire du Québec (CRAAQ), on November 23, 2017, in Drummondville.
By holding this contest, La Financière agricole du Québec, in conjunction with CRAAQ, seeks to demonstrate the importance it places on solid training and the acquisition of qualities and skills that pave the way to exercising a profession in agriculture.
