New program leads hired for OSCIA field delivery

 

April 10, 2013

To meet the evolving needs of new programs that will be delivered through the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA), five regional program leads have been hired. Delivery responsibilities are primarily those associated with the recently announced Growing Forward 2, as well as the programs OSCIA delivers for partners like the Ministry of Natural Resources, Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation, Environment Canada and others.

 Margaret May, Lois Sinclair, Paul Reeds, Arlene Ross and Claude Péloquin are strategically located across the province and will deliver workshops as well as assist with development activities. OSCIA expects to hire additional regional workshop leaders, as well as staff to support incentive program delivery, once the details of cost-share opportunities become available.

 “This is part of OSCIA’s efforts to update our field delivery network to best serve the programs of the future,” says OSCIA Executive Director Harold Rudy. “One of OSCIA’s strategic directions is program delivery and we must continuously improve so that we are delivering the best value both to producers and to our funding partners.”
