The program first came to Canada in 2000 and was hosted by Nova Scotia at Acadia University. That year, Manitoba joined Pennsylvania, Idaho, Washington, California, Arizona, New Jersey, Delaware, North Carolina, and Montana in finishing in the top ten.
Since then, two more competitions have been hosted by Canada: one in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and the other in Sackville, New Brunswick.
Envirothon Canada is very proud of the thousands of high school students who have participated since the program first came to our schools. Canadian teams have been well represented in the North American competition top ten rankings, ranging from teams in Nova Scotia (2002, 2003 & 2011), Manitoba (2003, 2006, 2007, 2009 & 2011), and Ontario (2004, 2010, 2011 & 2012).
Looking ahead to future “Envirothoners” we hope to continue to see strong youth leaders and perhaps a top-ten team from other representative provinces and territories!
