You can become a CFFO Member through the Farm Business Registration (FBR) Program. All Ontario farm businesses that gross $7,000 or more annually are required by law to register annually.
The FBR Program registration fee is $240 + HST.
To register, please contact Agricorp, a government agency that administers the FBR Program. You’ll be asked to select an Accredited Farm Organization (AFO) to represent you. We hope you’ll choose us!
Once you’ve registered through Agricorp, we’ll send you a CFFO membership card. This card entitles you to a number of benefits.
There are many reasons to register:
- You’ll be eligible for property tax reductions.
- You can get farm license plates.
- You can apply for government programs, like the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program.
- You can choose the CFFO to advocate on your behalf.
Once you have registered your farm business, Agricorp will send you an invoice each year. The annual deadline to renew is March 1.
