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

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.
