Our History

Canada has a long and proud tradition in the world of plowing. Although the Canadian Plowing Organization was not founded until 1955, three years after the World Ploughing Organization, Canada was strongly involved with the creation of the World Organization. In fact, Mr. Jack Carroll from Ontario was the first Chairman and the first World Competition was held at Cobourg, Ontario in 1953. Jim Eccles, a Canadian was the first winner.

Since then, six of the sixty world championships have been held in Canada. Canada hosted the 60th world championship plowing contests at Olds College, Olds, Alberta in 2013.
