Program Description

Each year, candidates are selected to participate in the Cattlemen’s Young Leaders Mentorship Program. The online application process opens in January and the deadline for eligible candidates to apply is generally in late March. Semi-finalists are invited to attend round-table discussions at the Canadian Beef Industry Conference where final candidates are selected.

Once selected, the candidates are matched with a hand-picked expert in the mentee’s specific field of interest. Topics of interest can range from sustainable ranching to risk management, policy development research and more!

Once candidates are matched with their respective mentors, the mentor/mentee journey begins. Through the creation of an initial roadmap, the mentor and candidate set out the goals they wish to achieve during the program. Candidates are given a budget of $2,000 to fund their participation in numerous industry events and learning opportunities!

Through attendance of industry events, meetings with their mentors, virtual learning opportunities and the completion of the Beef Advocacy Canada program and Verified Beef Production Plus training, candidates build upon their knowledge base and become highly capable individuals to represent and lead the beef industry into the future.
