The input of Canadians is essential when considering trade agreements, and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today announced expanded, online consultations with Canadians on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). 

The consultations are an important next step toward the renegotiation process. The views gathered from Canadians will inform the federal government’s approach as we engage with the United States and Mexico. 

In recent months, the Minister and her colleagues have been listening to Canadians from across the country and from all sectors and backgrounds. 

The government is steadfastly committed to free trade in the North American region and ensuring that the benefits of trade are enjoyed by all Canadians.

The Grassfed Exchange is a conference for and by producers to exchange ideas on practices, genetics and markets for grassfed.  The conference is also valuable for other value chain contributors such as processors, distributors and marketers.   This year's conference will be taking place in Albany, New York, on September 27th-29th.  Albany is only a 6-8 hour drive for most Ontarians.

The cost of registration is $345 US before July 31st and you can find out more about the conference at

A small group of Ontario grassfed advocates are interested in forming an Ontario delegation, chartering a bus and potentially organizing an additional tour of farms for Ontario participants while in New York. 

There is also some interest in hosting the 2018 Grassfed Exchange here in Ontario. 

This survey is to help us gauge how much serious interest there would be in attending this year's conference as a delegation and/or hosting the 2019 conference in Ontario.  We would likely not host the conference unless we knew we could achieve the same rates of participation as other US locations: roughly 250.
