Our organization is structured a little differently. The NFU-O is made up of farmers and their farm families. Every member of the NFU-O, including the farm family members (spouse and children ages 14 – 21), are full voting members of the NFU-O. This structure reflects the importance of everyone who contributes on the farm and participates in its viability through both on and off-farm employment.
The National Farmers Union is comprised of eight regions across the country. To the National organization, the NFU-Ontario is known as Region 3. The NFU-O elects eight council positions. A National Coordinator (who is the NFU-O or Region 3 President) and two other Ontario members sit on the National Board. A Women’s Advisor, a Youth Advisor, and three councillors at large.
Within the NFU-O, we have 22 Locals that make up our provincial organization. While they make up the NFU-Ontario, they have very unique voices of their own and each have their own place within our organization. You can find your Local here and see what they’re all about.
