2017 Farmland Forum


The 13th annual Farmland Forum will be held Thursday, March 30th, 2017 at the Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre Best Western, Orillia.

This year’s Farmland Forum will explore the future of farming and farmland protection in Ontario. Join us for presentations and discussions about the potential impacts of shifting farmland ownership, the significance of soil classification to inform land use planning, and how Ontario compares to the rest of Canada in farmland protection. In light of Ontario’s own policy changes from the Four Plan Review, hear about the Oregon Department of Agriculture’s experience with setting firm urban growth boundaries.
