Legacy Fund Survey
Background
In December 2020, Grain Farmers of Ontario announced the decision to wind down Wheat Marketing programs that were being managed by the organization, including a Wheat Pool program that marketed wheat on behalf of farmer-members, with an end date of May 31, 2021.

A fund was created in 2010 when Grain Farmers of Ontario was formed using contributions from accumulated assets of the three founding organizations (Ontario Wheat Producers’ Marketing Board, Ontario Corn Producers’ Association, and Ontario Soybean Growers). The fund was not created from the collection of license fees. It was used to cash flow wheat trading activities since 2010 and has a current value of approximately $14 million.

As a fund to provide cash flow for wheat trading is no longer needed, Grain Farmers of Ontario is beginning a process to identify the best way to use this legacy fund to build stronger success for Ontario grain farmer-members.

At the end of this survey, there is an open area where you can provide additional feedback.

At the request of Grain Farmers of Ontario, the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission is proposing amendments to the Farm Products Marketing Act relating to Grain-Plan and Grain-Marketing. You can review the details of the proposed amendments and submit comment until September 13. (https://www.ontariocanada.com/registry/view.do?postingId=38347&language=en)
