The Ontario Federation of Agriculture’s 2020 Annual General Meeting starts today at 9 a.m., virtually.

This year’s theme is ‘Navigating Our Road to Recovery’.

Officials say it incorporates economic recovery related to rural communities and the regional economic task forces that have been assembled across the province.

In addition to the formal business agenda, this year’s virtual meeting will have an exciting agenda that includes our keynote speaker, government leaders and engaged discussions on key issues and priorities impacting Ontario’s agriculture industry and rural communities.

The province agriculture minister, Ernie Hardeman, speaks at 9:10 a.m.
