History

On June 2, 1920, the Canadian Society of Technical Agriculturists was formally launched. The idea of an organization dedicated to the professional aspects of Canadian agriculture caught on and branches quickly formed across the country.

By 1944 the Canadian Society of Technical Agriculturists had evolved into the Agricultural Institute of Canada. Over time, nine provincial institutes of agrologists came on board to administer the formation, recognition and control of professional groups under provincial jurisdiction.

In 1995, following almost a decade of discussion and debate, members of the Agricultural Institute of Canada voted to restructure the organization into a federation of Member Organizations.

For ninety-five years, AIC responded to the needs of its members in serving the agricultural community, playing a central role as a source of credible information and comment for the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector.

The Institute has established itself as one of Canada’s foremost advocates for agricultural research and an important tool to facilitate the dissemination of agricultural research to academics and industry stakeholders.

In 2004 the AIC became a member-based organization once again.

AIC Membership categories include individual members as well as organizations, associations and corporate. The membership will determine views on issues as well as elect the national board.
