As we wrap up this year’s Economic Development Week, OFA wants to acknowledge the contributions agriculture makes to growing our rural communities and Ontario’s GDP. OFA encourages vibrant and resilient rural communities through our commitment to rural economic development. We acknowledge that further policies which support the economic well-being of rural Ontario will benefit farm families, the agri-food sector, and the broader provincial and national economy.
Producing prosperity in Ontario through farmland preservation, creating a secure and sustainable food system, investing in value-added agriculture and supporting the growth of the farm labour force are advocacy efforts OFA is making to grow our industry’s contributions.
