Proposed modernization of the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario (ARIO) Act

The Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario Act dates to 1962 with few changes since that time. The ARIO Act has served ARIO, government and industry well, but does not expressly reflect current and future research and innovation needs. The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs is proposing to modernize the ARIO Act which would help to ensure that the ARIO continues to be relevant today and serve the future needs of Ontario's agriculture sector. In addition to the proposed amendment to the Act, OMAFRA is proposed to amend O. Reg. 127/95 to update the definition of agricultural lands.
