Summary of Proposal:
At the request of the Ontario Broiler Hatching Egg and Chick Commission (OBHECC), the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission is proposing an amendment to R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 396: Broiler Hatching Eggs and Chicks- Marketing to establish a Broiler Hatching Egg and Chick Industry Advisory Committee (BHECIAC).
The committee is intended to help improve the seller/buyer relationship between OBHECC, buyers (Chicken Farmers of Ontario) and the end customer (Association of Ontario Chicken Processors) by providing a forum to discuss sector issues, develop solutions, and promote greater efficiency in the producing and marketing of their commodity.
The BHECIAC would be comprised of 11 members, including:
o A Commission appointed chair
o Four OBHECC appointed members
o Three Chicken Farmers of Ontario appointed members
o Three Association of Ontario Chicken Processors appointed members
As one of the Commission's strategic goals is to "foster enhanced stakeholder collaboration to achieve whole sector solutions", most local boards under the Farm Products Marketing Act have one or more advisory committees.
Regulation 396 is a Commission-made regulation which the Commission has authority to amend.
