Hi, I’m Jim Poel.

I’m proud to be known for friendly and reliable customer service and involvement in the community.

I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Guelph in 1981 and went on to complete the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program. I help my son-in-law operate our third-generation crop farm today.

Over the years, I’ve been a School Board Trustee and a Director at Libro Credit Union and served on the Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers Association Board. I’ve also volunteered for the Canadian Food for Children Charity since 1995. Over the past two decades, I’ve helped collect refurbished bikes and school supplies to send to third-world countries.
