Ontario solutions. Global impact.


The Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance (previously the OMAFRA-U of G Partnership) is a collaboration between the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs and the University of Guelph. We are working together to advance research and innovation that contributes to the success of the province’s agri-food sector and promotes rural economic development. Our research, laboratory, and veterinary capacity programs at U of G continue to ensure Ontarians have access to healthy, safe food, and that our farmers and businesses have the information they need to be competitive and sustainable. This partnership is working to usher in the next generation of agri-food innovations by supporting the people, places, and programs that generate Ontario solutions with global impact.
