As part of the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs’ 2023 Ontario Pre-Budget consultations, OFA outlined three key areas in rural Ontario where the province can stimulate the economy:
- Investing in rural Ontario’s physical and social infrastructure, including Roads & Bridges, Affordable Energy, Biomass, Natural Gas, Broadband, and Health Care;
- Improving access to veterinarian care in rural and northern Ontario; and
- Promoting and protecting Ontario grown food.
OFA is prepared to work closely with the Ontario government to deliver these necessary investments and programs for the benefit of Ontario’s economy and all its citizens.
