Our Mission: The Ontario Federation of Agriculture enables prosperous and sustainable farms.
OFA 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.
Help make agriculture a municipal priority
Monday, October 27 is municipal elections day in Ontario. The OFA has put together an elections kit with background information to help you talk about agriculture with candidates for municipal council in your area. The kit includes a sample letter to candidates, background on municipal governance, and information and questions to ask candidates on nearly 20 different issues from land use planning to wildlife damage, drainage and natural gas service.
Agriculture needs a strong voice at the municipal level to advocate for the decisions and actions that impact all of our farm businesses. Engage with your local candidates and help make agriculture a municipal priority.
