Online Agriculture Economic Development Training

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Is your community looking for new ways to support your local agriculture sector?

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has recently launched a new online Agriculture Economic Development Training course, which will be of great interest to economic developers, land-use planners, municipal councils and community leaders who want to explore agriculture as an economic development opportunity.

The course is split into two sessions:

  • Tuesday, March 26, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 16, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The interactive training sessions will share key agriculture economic development concepts, introduce the range of agriculture economic development activities communities can explore, give participants tools to develop a plan for agricultural economic development, and provide an overview of the Agriculture Economic Development guide’s three stages — plant, grow and harvest.
