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 $255 + HST.
Once you have registered your farm business, Agricorp will send you an invoice each year. The annual deadline to renew is March 1.
You can register online through 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 member laneway sign and CFFO membership card. This card entitles you to a number of benefits including automatic subscriptions to Faith Today and Country Guide. To opt-out of either subscription, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-855-800-0306.
There are many reasons to register:
- Exclusive CFFO Member Benefits
- Farm property tax reductions
- Farm license plates
- Over $10,000 in scholarships
- Access to government programs, like the Wildlife Damage Compensation Program
- Expert advice from CFFO staff
