  • Get Involved with OFA

    604 views 2 years ago
    The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) developed a video featuring many young farmers in an effort to highlight their reasons for getting involved in OFA events and activities across the province. This video showcases some of OFA's advocacy work in a positive, proactive light.

    What is OFA's role?
    • Farm advocacy (lobbying) – building relationships and updating government officials at all three levels about issues affecting agriculture
    • Farm events – being present at Ontario’s major farm shows and conventions and many county-level venues to meet with farmers and learn about their concerns so we can continue to be a strong voice for agriculture.
    • Farm leadership – from the county level boardroom and agriculture awareness events, to provincially-elected leaders representing farmers to speak with MPPs at Queen’s Park
