Lloyd Evans Memorial Award

As many of you know, Lloyd Evans was passionate about the agriculture industry and was always giving back anyway he could. Over the years, Lloyd was involved in countless committees and sat on numerous boards. He was a leader in our industry – both provincially and nationally. Lloyd served as President of the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture, spent over two decades on Council of Leaders and was chair of the Farm Safety Committee. He also was a Director with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, spent nine (9) years with the National Farm Safety Organization and served on the Executive for the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association. Lloyd’s resume was bountiful and spoke to his commitment and love for both agriculture and farm safety.

Lloyd was integral to the establishment of Farm Safety Nova Scotia and served as one of the original directors for this organization. In an effort to carry on his legacy while celebrating other farm safety leaders, we are excited to introduce to you, the Lloyd Evans Memorial Award.

This award will be awarded to an individual, farm, organization or agricultural business, who has had a positive impact on the agriculture industry and continuously works towards improving health and safety here in Nova Scotia. The Lloyd Evans Memorial Award will go to someone who makes significant contributions to support the advancement of health and safety in the agriculture industry. Someone who is considered a safety leader – just like Lloyd.
