Event Description

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OFA is conducting this year’s regional meetings in a virtual format. This format is to ensure we protect the health and safety of our staff, directors and members.

OFA regional meetings offer the opportunity to engage in discussions about the issues and priorities impacting the agriculture and food industry, network with local federation directors and fellow members, and support your local agricultural community.

The virtual experience of attending regional meetings will prepare delegates for OFA’s 2020 Annual General Meeting in November that will also be hosted on a virtual platform. Transitioning to a virtual format ensures we protect the health and safety of our staff, directors and members.

The event also includes elections for delegates and alternates to OFA’s Annual General Meeting and Policy Advisory Council (PAC) members. These positions will be representing their respective counties at OFA’s virtual annual meeting on November 23, 2020. These opportunities allow members to get involved in OFA’s work at a provincial level, bringing concerns, suggestions and leadership to provincial discussions.

Please contact your local Member Service Representative (MSR) for more information, including meeting details and election nominations. Find your local Member Service Representative (MSR) at ofa.on.ca/msr.
