Growing Ontario

Whether it’s the food we eat, the lumber that provides us shelter, the fuel that keeps us warm or moving, or the raw materials woven into the textiles we wear, Ontario farmers and forestry workers are meeting the vital needs of Ontario families everyday and providing those needs in a very sustainable fashion. Their contribution to our economy deserves recognition, their stories of innovative practices deserve to be shared, and their commitment to protecting our environment for future generations should be acknowledged. 

A new group has formed to celebrate the innovation and contribution provided by the agriculture and forestry sectors to the economy of northern and rural Ontario.

 

The group, Growing Ontario, will increase awareness of the important contributions of forestry and agriculture to the entire province. By highlighting the history of responsible environmental stewardship, commitment to local municipalities and dedication to innovative solutions that provide sustainable prosperity, Growing Ontario will demonstrate the relevance these sectors have in the lives of Ontarians.
