The 2023 National Farmers Union-Ontario (NFU-O) AGM & Convention is taking place virtually on March 23-24, with the theme Finite: Land Access, Use, & Ownership.

Join the NFU-O to dig in and explore the careful balancing act between farmland protection and further urbanization.

The NFU-O shares:

“Panels will unpack hot-button issues, such as the urgent need for the Ontario government to present, debate, and pass legislation to prevent the purchase of agricultural lands by private investment funds and pension plans and the power of citizen activism to fight back against urban sprawl and irresponsible development. We’ll explore alternative models for accessing farmland, in a time where the barriers to land access for new & young farmers are steeper than ever, and propose a future with smart, liveable (and feedable!) density growth targets & permanently protected agricultural land and natural heritage features.”
