Professional Organizations for Agrologists

Agrology is "the profession of applying science and scientific principles to the business and art of agriculture". University graduates who are skilled in the science and business of agriculture are encouraged to join their provincial Institute of Agrologists. Provincial Institutes offer the opportunity to get to know and exchange ideas with other professional agrologists in the province and in other parts of Canada through membership in the Agricultural Institute of Canada. Membership in an Institute of Agrologists provides an element of fellowship in the profession, as well as opportunities to attend scientific conferences and educational tours and to receive newsletters and technical publications. Membership in an Institute is required by provincial statute to practice agrology in most provinces.
