Join the conversation.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) wants your ideas on how we can work together to increase the agri-food and agri-product sector’s competitiveness in domestic and international markets and improve adaptability and sustainability within the sector.

Growing Forward 2 Strategic Initiatives provide opportunities to develop programs that support innovation, from discovery to adoption, as well as institutional, physical and human resource infrastructure.

Getting It Right

Growing Forward 2 Strategic Initiatives provide a valuable opportunity to advance Ontario’s priorities. We need to build on our existing strengths, such as our strong processing sector, diversified agriculture sector, the emerging bioeconomy, plentiful clean water, proximity to markets and good transportation infrastructure, and address areas of improvement, such as lagging labour productivity and investments in technological innovation.

OMAFRA is proposing to focus Ontario’s Strategic Initiatives on three themes:

  • Grow Your Profits;
  • Expand Your Markets; and,
  • Manage Shared Risks.

Your feedback is important to us and will help support positive change for our agri-food and agri-products industry.
