Government Announces $7.5 Million Investment in the Agri-food Sector
The government of Ontario recently announced $7.5 million in support to enhance the biosecurity of the Canadian agri-food sector.
The enhancements include a new, cost-share offering that will help farmers, food processors, and other essential farm-supporting agri-food businesses protect their operations against disease, enhance operational resilience and heighten public trust in the food supply system.
The Biosecurity Enhancement Initiative will be delivered by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. More details about the initiative and its application process will soon be available and we will update this article with a link at that time.
Applications for the Biosecurity Enhancement Initiative should be available by September 19, 2023. Applications will be accepted subject to funding availability.
