Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance

With affordable land and an innovative private sector, Northern Ontario is primed to diversify and support sustainable agriculture. However, producers interested in setting up operations in the North often have access to outdated directories. Now, with Northern Ontario Farm Innovation Alliance's (NOFIA) online information hub, users can easily access accurate, relevant information about northern agriculture. With GIS maps, real estate directories and research reports about each area's unique attributes, the innovative platform provides producers with exactly the information they need. It also offers a forum to connect producers, as well as a listing of upcoming events and industry news. By connecting agricultural organizations, producers, agri-businesses and prospective farmers, NOFIA is making it easier for agriculture to expand in the North.
