Frequently Asked Questions: OYFF Virtual Forums
The Ontario Young Farmers Forum is intended for young people involved in the agriculture industry from across Ontario between the ages of 18 – 40.
Due to the generous support of our industry partners and programs sponsors, registration is being offered free of charge.
The webinar series will provide the opportunity for young people working in agriculture to learn, connect, and network with other members of the agriculture industry from across Ontario. Each session will be approximately an hour in length and will generally consist of two parts; a presentation on a key agricultural issue from an industry member and a farmer spotlight which will consist of a presentation from a Canadian farmer. Following the webinar, a networking and social opportunity will be offered to attendees.
