About the Program

First offered in 1931, Members Forum is 4-H Canada’s longest-running program with its 89th edition taking place in 2021. An all-virtual experience for the second year in a row, this iconic event is the premier opportunity for 4-H youth across Canada to come together for an impactful, engaging, and fun-filled conference.

Through experiential learning and interactive activities, delegates will connect with other 4-H’ers, explore career paths with expert mentors, and develop the skills they need for the future. Delegates will leave feeling energized about making healthy choices, equipped to apply new knowledge and skills to club projects in their home communities, and maybe even discover new career paths to explore or pursue.

Virtual workshops will cover a range of topics, and Members will also participate in Mentorship Circles – an exciting opportunity to meet industry leaders to chat about career paths and life lessons.

Members Forum is moving virtually this year in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information on 4-H Canada’s response, please see our latest update on the pandemic.
