The latest information about OFA’s Feeding Your Future project can be found at feedingyourfuture.ca.
Feeding Your Future works to connect agri-food employers to current job seekers, to help fill the labour shortage within Ontario agriculture, now and into the future. Through a job matching concierge service, free virtual career fairs, a webinar series and specialized training opportunities, this project is rapidly developing a support system for employers, while creating new job prospects for Ontarians.
There are unique workforce challenges and opportunities in the agri-food sector.
Employers are seeking qualified candidates for planting, harvesting, processing, marketing, researching, and selling Ontario’s healthy, high-quality food, beverage and agri-products.
OFA wants to make it easier for employers to find, train, and retain the workers they need, and help employ Ontarians with meaningful jobs during COVID-19 and beyond.
Through Canadian Agricultural Partnership funding, OFA and its partners have coordinated a support system for agriculture and food employers from field to fork, to feed Ontario’s future.
Together, we can help support employers from field to fork to fill labour shortages and encourage job seekers across the province to consider a career in agriculture and food.
