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.

Luckily, an upcoming information session, The Dish at AgSmart, will equip farmers with the diverse tools and strategies they need to navigate the complexities of agricultural risk management. The Dish, hosted by Agriculture Financial Services (AFSC), takes place July 30 in Olds and will feature lunch and networking opportunities. “This year’s session of The Dish will give young, new and existing producers an opportunity to really look at what risk management entails,” said Darryl Kay, AFSC’s chief executive officer. “Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from industry exp
