Workshops

Environmental Farm Plan (EFP)

The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) is a voluntary assessment by farm families to increase environmental awareness. Farmers highlight their farm’s environmental strengths, areas of concern, and set realistic action plans to improve environmental conditions.

Growing Your Farm Profits (GYFP)

The GYPF workshop is an excellent opportunity for new and established farmers to undertake a self-reflection of their farm management practices, creating strong relationships among the farm management team, and connecting with key resources to help make achievable goals for their farm business. Farm families and management teams are encouraged to attend the workshop together.

Biosecurity

Biosecurity Workshops and Webinars are a good place to start addressing your on-farm biosecurity program. Offered as a one-day, in-person workshop or as two, 2-hour webinars. Workshops and webinars are offered for Generic Livestock ( which includes beef, dairy, sheep, and goat producers), Crops and Horticulture (includes field crops, horticulture and floriculture), Bees, Mink, and Poultry producers.

FAQ

Workshops and Events

Find answers to our most frequent questions about OSCIA delivered workshops and events.

From the Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) to commodity-specific Biosecurity Workshops, and Growing your Farm Profits (GYFP), OSCIA has a deep-rooted history delivering workshops and webinars to Ontario’s farming community. Some workshops are offered in different formats (e.g., in-person, webinar). To find the right opportunity for you, information on workshops can be found here.

There is no fee to attend a workshop or webinar, but pre-registration is required. Workshops may not run without a minimum number of registrants.

Different workshops may be tailored to specific commodities or at different stages of the process. For example, an eEFP is for participants who have completed an in-person 3rd or 4th edition workshop and are simply wanting to update their workbook, while the biosecurity workshops and webinars are tailored to specific commodities.  
Information including dates, times, and the location of scheduled in-person workshops and biosecurity-webinars can be found here.
