Annual General Meeting

Join the Organic Council of Ontario to celebrate the 2018 Annual General Meeting & Policy Forum on April 13th at the Country Heritage Park in Milton Ontario.

We would like to invite OCO members and the general public to participate in a day of informative presentations, sessions, an exciting tour of the park, and a delicious local organic tasting experience!

This year we are expanding the AGM to include a NEW one-day policy conference, trade show and reception.

Plus: It’s Back! Local Organic Tasting Reception

Join us for a series of seasonal taste sensations, featuring local chefs and food businesses!

The whole day is open to the public, but we especially encourage you to invite your organic minded friends and guests to attend the local organic tasting experience taking place from 6:00pm-8:30pm.

List of vendors coming soon!
