2020 Tournez-vous vers l'excellence! Contest

The 15th edition is launched!

This contest is aimed at young agricultural entrepreneurs who, thanks to their professional skills and managerial qualities, stand out due to the excellence of their profile.

The call for applications is open from February 3 to April 24, 2020.

To participate, you must download and complete this registration form on which you will find all the information you need, including the eligibility criteria. The first 15 entries will automatically win an entry to the awards ceremony.

The winners will be announced at the Colloque gestion of the Quebec Reference Center for Agriculture and Agri-food (CRAAQ) on November 24 in Victoriaville.

Five grants will be awarded, totaling $13,000:

  • $5,000 to the grand prize winner
  • $2,500 to the other two winners
  • $1,500 for the most outstanding candidate in terms of sustainable development
  • $1,500 for the candidate who has stood out for the importance of their coaching or mentoring. This grant is awarded by the Fonds d’investissement pour la relève agricole (FIRA) (Investment Fund for Agricultural Succession).

Through this contest, La Financière Agricole du Québec, in collaboration with CRAAQ, demonstrates the importance it attaches to training and to a set of qualities and talents paving the way for the practice of farming.

Good luck to one and all!
