OFVGA AGM GOES VIRTUAL

The Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association has made the difficult decision to hold the February 22, 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) virtually.

The health and safety of our members are of utmost importance. 

A Zoom meeting will be set up and a link will be provided at a later date.  In similar fashion to last year’s AGM, everyone is welcome to attend and only registered and confirmed voting delegates/directors will be able to vote on resolutions and elections.

Premier Doug Ford and Minister of Agriculture Lisa Thompson will be joining virtually on February 22nd, 2022.

Section chairs and staff look forward to providing up-to-date information on what is and has been happening at the OFVGA and the industry. You will have the opportunity to participate during the meeting and have your questions answered.

Video: CFA and Telus Hosted Webinar - 5g connectivity: What does this mean for Canadian farmers?


Canadian Federation of Agriculture - Agriculture is in the midst of a digital revolution. As farmers, ranchers, and agri-food businesses transition to digitized practices and management systems, the sector faces a range of opportunities to leverage new and innovative technologies to enhance the sustainability and productivity of Canada’s agri-food industry.

As the next big innovation enabler, it’s estimated that 5G will add as much as $40 billion to Canada’s GDP within five years, and another $500 billion in value could be added to the global gross domestic product if connectivity is successfully implemented in the agriculture industry.

As we look ahead to a future with 5G, we can unlock the possibilities of data driven agriculture in which farmers, agronomists, and scientists will have more information than ever to drive new, more precise methods of farming. We can also expect semi-autonomous to fully-autonomous farming capabilities and farm operations vehicles, a multitude of sensor devices, augmented reality, and real-time decision making on-farm, based on data from those devices – 5G can support all of that to help farmers produce more sustainably while increasing public trust.
