Becoming A CCA:

If you are intested in becoming a CCA, below is the study guide order form, pre-exam workshop agenda and online registration, and the certification exam(s) registration. Exam registration will open on May 3rd and remain open to July 7th.  You MUST register within the registration period, no exceptions. Registration closes on July 7th. The exams will be written from August 4th to 11th. If you fail the exams, the cost to re-write the International stays the same, but the Ontario exam fee will drop to $50.00 USD + proctor fee. 

Please note that study material orders are final sale. Study guides will be processed within 1-3 business days of receiving the order and can take 5-7 business days to ship (location dependent). The 4R study guide is currently in the process of being updated to reflect the new Performance Objectives. The study guide will be ready to purchase in Fall 2021. 

Registration for the CCA Pre-exam workshop has now closed. Registration will open up again in September, 2021. 

This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, the pre-exam workshop will be held virtually. 


Individuals who require special accommodations for the exam, please notify our office (519)669-3350 or three weeks prior to the exam date.  You must provide documentation from a medical professional regarding required accommodations.

Soil and Water Information Day

Soil and Water Information Day is an annual event hosted to provide certified crop advisers and other industry professionals the opportunity to learn about current issues, best practices and current research when it comes to land and crop management. Offering a variety of different speakers presenting important and relevant information to the industry.

Assuming in-person events can be held in November, the next Soil & Water Day will be held on November 17, 2021 at Springfield Golf and Country Club in Guelph. The CCA Board will make a decision closer to the date if the day needs to be online. 

Agenda and registration will be posted closer to the date. 


CCA Conference and Annual Meeting 

The CCA Conference is a highly anticipated annual event for the Ontario CCA’s to come together and learn about different aspects of agriculture and to improve their knowledge to better serve those in the farming community. Advisors who attend this conference gain the knowledge needed to stay on top of new trends, network with other CCAs and suppliers, and hear from dynamic speakers on a wide range of topics. 

Assuming in person events can resume by 2022, the CCA Conference will be held January 12 and 13, 2022 at the Best Western Lamplighter Inn in London, ON. The CCA Board will make a decision closer to the dates if the conference needs to be moved online again. 

The agenda and registration will be posted in the fall.
