Summary of Proposal:
Under provincial regulations, the Ontario Pork Producers’ Marketing Board (“Ontario Pork”) has authorities regarding the marketing of hogs in Ontario. O. Reg 403/10 (Hogs – Plan) defines a new governance and electoral structure for Ontario Pork and, will replace R.R.O. 1990, Regulation 420 (Hogs – Plan). The new regulation results in a smaller, more efficient board and delegate body.

The provisions in Regulation 403/10 are based on recommendations from Ontario Pork - following extensive stakeholder consultation within the industry - and include the following:

- Four electoral zones as geographically defined
- Nine board members with three year terms with a maximum of four terms
- A provision for by-elections of board members when vacancies occur
- An approximately one hundred delegate model with a minimum of one delegate per association
- A maximum of two alternates per delegate
- A minimum of five registered producers to be an association
- A second vote per registered producer as is permitted currently in the regulation
