GF2 Success Stories from Ontario's Organizations and Collaborations
Growing Forward 2 (GF2) is a success story for Ontario organizations and collaborations. From 2013 to 2017, close to 400 projects received almost $34 million in cost-share funding through
GF2, all supporting initiatives to help drive innovation, growth and competitiveness for Ontario’s agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector.
As a delivery partner, the Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) has approved projects under the
GF2 program’s six focus areas.
Growing Forward 2 encouraged project funding for collaborations, which are combinations of two or more farmers, for-profit businesses or organizations, to work together and bring projects forward to help address issues or maximize opportunities facing the industry.
The projects funded under
GF2 reflect the diversity of Ontario’s agricultural sector, as well as the ongoing need for funding to support research and innovation. They also demonstrated a continual willingness by the industry to grow, improve and meet new challenges – all with a common goal of building a strong future for agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products in Ontario.
