Implementation of the Food and Farming Strategy for the Golden HorseshoeImplementation of the Food and Farming Strategy for the Golden Horseshoe (by the Greater Toronto Area Agricultural Action Committee)
$210,000 - October 12, 2011

The Greater Golden Horseshoe's food and farming industry contributes $35 billion to the provincial economy through jobs and economic activity. This project supports the implementation of key activities outlined in a newly developed Action Plan to recognize and grow this important economic driver.

 The GTA-AAC, along with their partners, the regions of Hamilton and Niagara, are receiving funds to get started on implementation of the Action Plan. The grant also supports a working group of regional and municipal economic development staff to attract new business that will lead to better integration of Greenbelt goods into the distribution chain, new processing infrastructure, and new markets.
