Trade War Fallout

The Future of Ontario’s Environmental Farm Plan (EFP)
with guest speakers Cindy Bradley MacMillan and Kristy McIntosh, OMAFRA
The CFFO was instrumental in the development of Ontario’s EFP. Today, OMAFRA is exploring the potential ways to modernize the EFP in collaboration with the industry, including its value as a marker of sustainability. What is the role of the EFP on your farm? What is its potential value to the future of Ontario agri-business? Representatives from OMAFRA are eager to hear your ideas for the EFP of the future.

Proposed Amendments to the Aggregate Resources Act
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is reviewing changes to the Aggregate Resources Act in order to “reduce burdens for business while maintaining strong protection for the environment and managing impacts to communities.” What could these changes mean for agriculture, and what recommendations should CFFO offer?
