The future of Canadian agriculture is bright, if you ask the Canadian Agri-Business Education Foundation (CABEF). The foundation is proud to support and encourage young people to pursue an education in agriculture and food. The CABEF Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships are funded through generous donations from the Canadian agriculture industry. This year, seven $2,500 scholarships were awarded to students entering or currently pursuing an agricultural or agri-food related program at a Canadian college, university or technical institution.

The 2020 recipients of the CABEF Pathways to Agri-Food Scholarships are:

  • Paula Eraso, Chilliwack, BC
  • Amanda Harman, Stoney Plain, AB
  • Caylee Dorval, Glaslyn, SK
  • Christine Kilpatrick, Teulon, MB
  • Josh Weber, Newbury, ON
  • Hugo Drouin, Saint-Basile-le-Grand, QC
  • Maria Duynisveld, Wallace, NS

“We are proud to support the future of the Canadian agriculture industry with these scholarships,” said Jenn Norrie, chair of the board for CABEF. “With the high-quality applications received from students across the country, the future of Canadian agriculture is very bright.”


Applicants were assessed on a combination of their leadership attributes and their written or video response to the question: “What do you consider to be the two main opportunities for the Canadian agriculture industry and which one inspires you the most?”

CABEF aims to advance education and encourage excellence in the agriculture industry for the benefit of the public by providing scholarships to students enrolled in an agriculture-related program at a Canadian post-secondary institution.
