CFFO POLICY TOUR 2020

Due to Ontario's state of emergency, CFFO's Policy Tour meetings have been cancelled or postponed until further notice.

 

Balancing Farmland with Development

The Policy Tour is one of the best opportunities CFFO staff have to get local feedback on important trends and concerns in agriculture - right across the province.

This year, we're discussing development pressures. The farming sector often finds itself caught between a push for development on one hand and a push for environmental protection on the other. Currently, government is in the process of refining two key policy tools. Let’s make sure they will keep that all-important balance.

  • Environmental Farm Plan – due for an update for a new generation of farmers.
  • Agricultural Impact Assessments – a new tool to help balance the Agri-Food Network with other development.

Have your say. Help CFFO ensure these policy tools will work well for farmers now and in years to come.
