Understanding the Effects of COVID-19 on Agriculture in Northern Ontario
The Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance has collaborated with Collège Boréal, the University of Guelph, Greater Sudbury Food Policy Council and the Rural Agri-Innovation Network to study these challenges and opportunities that have surfaced as a result of the pandemic. This study will allow the partners to identify and respond to the needs of agri-businesses across the north.
The research team has created a survey to help identify the needs of agri-businesses across the north. The results from this survey will allow the partner organizations to support production, distribution and marketing activities during the pandemic and to provide evidence-based recommendations for agri-businesses and policymakers in the future and enhance supports in the long-term.
