The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing $2.76 million through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership) in Ontario-led agri-food research to develop new innovative technologies, practices, and solutions to make the sector more competitive and resilient.

Agri-food research is an important part of Ontario’s plan to bring new technologies and processes to market and address existing issues and gaps in the food supply chain. The Ontario Agri-Food Research Initiative (OAFRI) is supporting 21 projects that provide Ontarians with safer, healthier, and more locally grown and made food items while boosting trade and rural economic development.
