The Impact of Research on the Agri-Food Sector in Ontario

From Lisa M. Thompson, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs

"As Ontario’s Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), I would like to hear directly from you to learn more about how you access and use agri-food related research findings on your farm or at your organization. It is important to me that farmers are getting information that is impactful to help propel our sector forward and that new innovations are getting into your hands and on your fields.

I am inviting you to participate in a survey to help us learn more about the type of research that is important to you and how we can ensure you receive the results and findings of the ongoing research we are supporting in a format that works for you. This will help us keep the priorities of our Ontario farmers front of mind and ensure research is providing the information that you need as we move towards future innovation.

To provide your input, please go to or use the QR code below. We ask that your response be submitted by March 5, 2022.

I would greatly appreciate if you could share this message throughout your farmer networks, so that they too can fill out the survey. It is important that we hear from a range of voices.

Your input is invaluable, and we encourage you to share your knowledge and experience by taking this 5-10 minute survey.
