The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) provides over $4 million in annual funding support through Growing Forward 2 for commercialization and innovation in the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector.

This support provides base funding for a network of organizations with services and programs that help businesses, researchers and entrepreneurs to move innovation to the marketplace.

OMAFRA also provides support to research and innovation centres whom work collaboratively with agri-food partners to develop and implement research and innovation strategies and priorities, leading to industry competitiveness.
