Farmer Tax Credit Bill (Bill 36)
Ontario farmers who donate to local food banks and community meal programs are eligible to receive a 25% tax credit based on the fair market value of the donated product! Feed Ontario worked with the agricultural community and MPP Bob Bailey (Sarnia-Lambton) to gain support on this initiative, which was passed in 2013 with all-party support. Ontario is the first province in Canada to offer this tax credit.
