McConnell named to Order of Canada

A well-known and respected leader in Canadian agriculture, particularly in the world of agriculture marketing, has been named to the Order of Canada.

Kim McConnell, founder and former CEO of AdFarm, is one of 99 appointees announced by Governor General David Johnston on Friday on the eve of the 150th anniversary of Confederation (read the entire list here.)

McConnell’s citation refers to his “leadership in promoting Canada’s agricultural industry and for his extensive engagement in causes supporting youth, entrepreneurship and rural communities.”

A great friend of RealAgriculture, McConnell has served on many boards and facilitated many meetings, forums and reports regarding the future of Canadian agriculture and mentoring future leaders. He was inducted into the Canadian Ag Hall of Fame in 2012.

“All of us here at 4-H are proud of Kim’s recent appointment to the prestigious Order of Canada,” said 4-H Canada CEO Shannon Benner in a statement. “He has been a 4-H advocate for most of his life and has always found the time to give back to his community in one way or another. This most recent announcement speaks volumes about his character, leadership, dedication to agriculture, youth and his community.”

Established during Canada’s centennial year by Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is one of our country’s highest civilian honours.

Congratulations to Kim on being named a member of the Order of Canada.
