May 16, 2013
The OFA and Chrysler Canada have partnered up to bring our members the OFA Fleet Discount Program, which could help members save thousands of dollars on the purchase of Chrysler Dodge & Jeep vehicles. The program was initially launched in the summer of 2012 and will continue through 2013.
OFA member offer: The OFA Fleet Discount program offers exclusive savings to OFA members on the purchase of 2013 Chrysler Dodge & Jeep fleet vehicles. These discounts are only available for fleet purchases under the OFA Fleet Discount Program.
To successfully access the program, OFA members will need to:
Provide their local Chrysler dealership with their OFA membership card, HST number and the OFA Fleet Administration Number (FAN) G4369.
Find the Chrysler make and model of your choice and view your savings using the OFA Fleet Discount/Concessions list.
To continue taking advantage of exclusive offers and discounts with OFA through our Member Benefit Partners Program, remember to renew your membership for 2013 by completing the new two-step process. The deadline to complete step two and confirm your OFA membership for 2013 is May 31, 2013. Sign your membership agreement online.

This year marked a new two-step process for becoming an OFA member. Step one is the annual Farm Business Registration (FBR) process. Step two is a new government requirement that Ontario farmers sign a membership agreement with the OFA to be recognized as a member, and receive access to all the benefits of membership. There is no cost to the second step, but your signature is required by government.
Thank you to everyone who has already confirmed their 2013 OFA membership. You will continue to receive all the benefits of your OFA membership.
May 31 is the deadline if you haven’t completed step two to confirm your 2013 OFA membership. Don’t lose your member benefits – access to Member Service Representatives, exclusive discounts and promotions, voting rights for OFA leadership and your OFA member card.
If you didn’t receive an OFA membership agreement in the mail, please contact OFA at 1-800-668-3276, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the form online.

Revised fee schedule for agricultural tires: Are you eligible for a refund?
May 8, 2013
Ontario Tire Stewardship (OTS) has revised its fee schedule for agricultural tires, retroactive to April 1, 2013. Tire stewardship fees for selected tire sizes were reduced. Tire stewardship fees are charged not only on the purchase of replacement tires, but also on new farm equipment purchases.
Did you purchase tires or new farm equipment with tires in Ontario between April 1 and April 18, 2013? If so, you are eligible for a partial refund of the tire stewardship fee you paid. Increased tire stewardship fees were announced on April 1, but subsequently reduced on April 18 after industry pressure.
Check your invoices to ensure you’re paying the correct tire stewardship fee. If you paid the higher fee between April 1 and April 18, you are eligible to receive a refund of the difference. Contact your tire retailer directly for a refund.
