Protecting species at risk: McGuinty Government Supports Farm Incentive Program

Ontario’s new Species at Risk Farm Incentive Program will encourage greater protection and conservation of species at risk and their habitats on privately owned agriculture lands across the province.

Natural Resources Minister Donna Cansfield signed a multi-partner agreement with Ontario Federation of Agriculture President Geri Kamenz to launch the cost-share pilot program supporting volunteer stewardship activities on eligible farms.
