Big News, Exciting Future – Seeking New Executive Director

It is an exciting time for the Ontario Farmland Trust – a time of transition and growth. OFT is pleased to announce two major developments:

1. A significant investment by the Ontario Trillium Foundation in our Farmland Protection Program, and

2. The search for a new Executive Director.

Over the coming months OFT will be transitioning to a new staffing arrangement that advances our organizational development, enhances our public outreach, and supports expanded and sustainable program delivery.

During this transition, our current ED, Matt Setzkorn, will become OFT’s Manager of Strategic Programs and Policy. This will allow Matt to focus more on his passion of facilitating OFT farmland protection projects and partnerships, while also having more flexibility to pursue his independent farm business and wine-making interests during the farming season.

Do you know someone who would be a good fit for the OFT Executive Director role? Please let us know, introduce us, or pass on the job posting.

We look forward to this next stage of growth and development of OFT’s leadership team and our unique Farmland Protection Program.

– Norm Ragetlie, Chair
