A person is eligible for Professional Agrologist status in the Nova Scotia Institute of Agrologists if he/she has obtained an appropriate university degree and has equivalent to three years post-degree experience as an Agrologist.
Articling status is granted to those qualified applicants with the appropriate degree but lacking the experience requirement.
A full member who is no longer practicing agrology but still wishes to remain a member of the Institute can become a retired member.
Distinguished Life Member
The Council may, by unanimous vote, elect as Distinguished Life Member, any member who has reached the age of sixty (60) or any Member of the Agricultural Profession who has rendered signal service to the profession.
Any person who is deemed by Council to be ineligible to become a Professional Agrologist but who has an acceptable combination of education and experience may become an Associate Member. An Associate Membership provides the benefits of networking and professional development but not the eligibility to use the P.Ag. professional designation.
A student membership is available to undergraduate and graduate students for a nominal fee. This provides free admission to our professional development activities, the opportunity to network with professionals and stay current on the issues in agriculture in Nova Scotia.
The Agrologists Act of the Province of Nova Scotia obligates all persons practicing agrology in the province to be registered with the Nova Scotia Institute of Agrologists.
