GUELPH, ON (July 18, 2016) – Ontario's grain and oilseed sector is poised for growth. Growth in the grain and oilseed sector will increase jobs and economic activity in rural areas that depend on farming and provide a greater contribution to Canada's GDP.
An Agricultural Policy Framework (APF) designed to provide strategic investments in Ontario grain and oilseed farming will help farmers realize these economic opportunities for Canada and support grain and oilseed farmers' contributions to Canada's climate change goals.
