Each January, Grain Farmers of Ontario supports its 15 districts in holding District Meetings. These meetings serve as annual elections for district representation, and District Director elections are held every other year (even numbered districts in even numbered year, odd numbered districts in odd numbered years).
Grain Farmers of Ontario provides organizational updates to attendees and districts are encouraged to bring forward any new resolutions for discussion.
2021 District Meetings
2021 January District Grain Committee Meetings will be hosted online through Zoom. The Board of Directors has approved this change in meeting format to ensure the health and safety of all farmer-members and staff as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
