Keep Grain Farming Sustainable

Stand with Ontario’s grain farmers who are reducing our carbon footprint and creating a more sustainable future for farming

WHAT IS THE ISSUE?

Since 1981, Ontario's grain farmers have increased our land use efficiency by 35% while reducing the amount of energy we use by 28%. Canadian grain farmers have saved over 170,000,000 litres of fuel each year, or the equivalent of taking 122,000 cars off the road. The result is a greater yield on the sustainable grains that feed Ontario with a smaller environmental footprint.

The government of Canada has recognized these efforts and the commitment our grain farmers have made to a more sustainable future while acknowledging that those contributions have come at a cost. To ensure grain farming can continue to put high quality sustainable grains on Canadian tables and work towards even more sustainable innovations, they’ve promised:

  • An exemption on the carbon price for the fuel used to dry grains until a proven fossil fuel alternative is in place.
  • A retroactive rebate on carbon pricing paid to date on fuel for grain drying.
  • Without these, grain farmers will be paying more for the carbon price than they would for the fuel to dry their grain, creating both an uncertain future for grain farming and limiting the resources available for further sector-wide innovation.
