Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission proposed amendments to R.R.O. 1990, Regulation 440: Vegetables for Processing - Marketing.

As you may already be aware, on October 12, 2017, the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission posted proposed amendments to R.R.O. 1990, Regulation 440: Vegetables for Processing - Marketing.

 

Details of the proposed amendments are currently posted on the Service Ontario Regulatory Registry. Interested parties are encouraged to provide their comments by December 11, 2017.

 

As the new chair of the OPVG board, I feel it important that the Board take this time to thoroughly study and discuss the proposed amendments before we submit our feedback by the required 60 day deadline. Over the next couple of months, board directors will be reaching out to our Districts, growers and industry stakeholders to gather your thoughts and input. 

 

The Commission will also hold two in person consultation sessions with stakeholders late October or early November to provide an opportunity to clarify the proposed changes. We strongly encourage all of our members to attend and provide their feedback.

 

At the OPVG’s request, the Commission has also agreed to attend a meeting with the board on Friday, October 20, 2017, where we will have an opportunity to review the amendments and ask questions of clarification. If you have any questions which you would like us to bring forward before this meeting, please feel free to email them to suzanne@opvg.org.

 

Thank you,

Suzanne van Bommel

Chair, OPVG
