Applications are now open for the Ontario Agri-Food Research Initiative, a grant available to help eligible organizations fund agri-food research projects.

The goals of the initiative are to:

  • fund demand-driven research that can support agri-food policy, programs or the marketplace
  • improve knowledge or technology to help Ontario’s agri-food sector businesses address challenges
  • help agri-food businesses expand market opportunities locally and globally

Research priorities change each year to address opportunities and challenges facing the agri-food sector and rural communities. Priorities for the 2020-21 application year are Food Safety, Plant Health and Protection, and Sustainable Production Systems.

The deadline to apply is Friday, January 8, 2021, at 2 p.m. EST.
