Event Description

Trade War Fallout
with guest speaker Al Mussel, Agri-food Economic Systems
Farm groups, including the OFA, NFU and Grain Farmers of Ontario, are asking government to address the negative consequences of current trade wars and the inability of Ontario’s BRM programs to meet today’s challenges. Al Mussel will offer an overview of the current situation and address member concerns.

The Future of Ontario’s Environmental Farm Plan (EFP)
with guest speakers Cindy Bradley MacMillan and Kristy McIntosh, OMAFRA

The CFFO was instrumental in the development of Ontario’s EFP. Today, OMAFRA is exploring the potential ways to modernize the EFP in collaboration with the industry, including its value as a marker of sustainability. What is the role of the EFP on your farm? What is its potential value to the future of Ontario agri-business? Representatives from OMAFRA are eager to hear your ideas for the EFP of the future.
