The Rural Ontario Institute has raised over $105,000 thanks to the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) 2022 Dream Gala and Golf Tournament.

The June 2022 event, produced by AALP Class 18, took on a new format with a daytime golf tournament added to the traditional evening event.

Each AALP class hosts a fundraiser for the incumbent class to help offset costs of an international study tour that gives Ontario agricultural leaders an opportunity to experience agriculture beyond borders and to network with agricultural leaders from other areas of the world.


The AALP 2022 Dream Gala and Golf Tournament raised over $105,000 for class 19 and beyond reaching new heights for future ag-sector leaders.

“We could never have reached this amazing amount without the support and help of the sponsors we worked with. People and organizations were incredibly generous and showed how important supporting excellence in agricultural leadership truly is for this industry and its continued future success,” said Jaime Carson, Co-Chair of the AALP 2022 Dream Gala and Golf Tournament and Dairy Nutrition Consultant at B-W Feed and Supply.

Class 18 visited Portugal and Morocco on their international study tour, meeting with ag-industry leaders in both countries and discovering shared interests common in Ontario agriculture.

The Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) is an 18-month experiential executive leadership program for those who want to shape the future of the agriculture and food industry and make a positive difference in rural communities across Ontario.
