Our Mission: Farms and Food Forever.
The Ontario Federation of Agriculture is Canada’s largest voluntary farm organization representing the interest of Ontario farm families. As a farmer-led organization we understand farm issues and we champion the interests of Ontario’s farming community with governments and the public. We are the voice of Ontario farmers for a sustainable farming and food sector.
Farm organizations host annual Hill Lobby Day
Farmer representatives and members of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA), Quebec Farmers’ Association and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) hosted their annual Hill Lobby Day on Thursday, March 23 on Parliament Hill. The Hill Lobby Day provided a great opportunity for Ontario and Canadian farmer representatives to bring key messages directly from grassroots members to our federal leaders. Hon. Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food addressed the attendees and spoke about the importance and value of Canada's agriculture and agri-food sector.
Key priorities that were discussed with Members of Parliament throughout the day included The Path to Prosperity report and the role of Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector in driving economic growth, investments in infrastructure for transportation, broadband and natural gas infrastructure, climate change and a Canadian food policy.
OFA was proud to participate, along with our fellow agricultural organizations, to bring agriculture’s voice to our federal government.
