Licences are typically issued for a five (5) year period and expire on the fifth anniversary of their issuance. Licencees may reapply to the Commission for a licence six months prior to that time. Note that the Commission may, after a hearing, suspend or revoke or refuse to renew a licence for failure to observe, perform or carry out the Act, the regulations, the plan or any order of the Commission or of the relevant marketing board. In addition, processing the commodities above without a licence from the Commission is in contravention of the Farm Products Marketing Act and regulations.
Personal information on this form is collected under the authority of the Farm Products Marketing Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. F.9. It will be used to determine eligibility for a licence as a processor for the above crops.
Please contact your area municipality to determine what additional approvals may be required with respect to your proposed processing facility.
