OFVGA Submission: Ontario's Financial Protection Programs
Hon. Ernie Hardeman
Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs
The Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association (OFVGA) is writing in response to the proposed changes to Ontario's Financial Protection Programs that are posted for comment on the Regulatory Registry (posting no. 19-OMAFRA006). While we recognize the existing financial protection programs are geared towards grains and livestock farmers, we believe there is an opportunity through this review to lay the groundwork for comparable protections for the fruit and vegetable sector.
