OFA Election Priorities

Here are the TOP 4 issues that matter to Ontario farmers right now

1. Access to competitively priced energy to offer affordable and competitive electricity rates, and expanded access to economical natural gas throughout rural Ontario

2. Improve property taxation for farmers and municipal funding so farmland taxes reflect the services provided

3. Reintroduce food literacy in our schools to teach Ontario’s young adults to make better, healthier food choices

4. Provide ongoing agri-skills training to keep our sector strong, innovative and competitive
