The Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance (NOFIA) has partnered with the Ontario Soil & Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) to conduct a study to determine the barriers to OSCIA-delivered program participation in Northern Ontario. Over the past few years, OSCIA has noticed lower participation numbers within these programs, such as workshops (Environmental Farm Plan, Grow Your Farm Profits, Biosecurity) and funding (Canadian Agricultural Partnership producer streams, SARPAL/SARFIP, etc.). The goal of the study is to determine the barriers to participation and develop recommendations to better serve northern farming communities with these programs.
As part of the study, NOFIA is conducting a survey to gather insight on the program and help develop recommendations to better improve OSCIA’s program delivery.
To access the survey, please visit www.nofia-agri.com, or, if a hard copy is preferred, please call 705-647-4782. Your participation in this survey is greatly appreciated, as the more feedback we receive, the more opportunities there will be to explore ways to improve the program for Northern Ontario
