Ontario’s 50,000 plus farms need the Best Farm Advice

Woodstock ON, May 11, 2015 – Ontario’s 50,000 plus farms are hugely successful contributing  over $4 billion to Ontario’s GDP.  Its continued success is reliant on many factors, not the least of which are skilled and knowledgeable farm advisors.   The CURRENT & CONNECTED 2015 Conference in Woodstock on June 4 inspires farm advisors to improve their farm-focused skills and knowledge and build industry resources to better assist their farm clients.

This year CAFA offers an compelling line-up of topics and speakers that will update, educate and energize.  Advisors will learn how to build and transition three types of wealth, a must know for every farm sale and succession.  Learn about vital AAFC research keeping Ontario’s farms globally competitive.  Discover how to strategically use different farm business structures from a top tax lawyer.  Get the latest update on new provincial construction rules that will affect farm building planning, and finally, advice on how to avoid and manage legal disputes.

CAFA is proud of its track record in hosting this outstanding conference for the last 11 years. “This is going to be a day of top-level information for farm advisors and all farm-industry stakeholders”, says Robertson.  “You just can’t get this combination of information and farm-focused advisors anywhere else,” she adds.

“How a farm is managed is one of the key factors in its success,” says Liz Robertson, CAFA’s Executive Director.  “Farm managers regularly make major decisions that can have significant consequences.  Getting the right advice from your team of advisors is crucial, so they best know what’s going on in the industry and who else is available to help.” says Robertson.

The CURRENT & CONNECTED 2015 Conference is a day when Ontario’s top farm advisors meet to learn about new planning strategies and industry trends and issues from leading speakers.  Combine that with what is learned by sharing experiences and insight with other farm advisors and it is a day that educates, inspires and helps the farm advisors to be the best they can be.

CAFA is a national, not-for-profit professional umbrella organization dedicated to assisting farm families and businesses by increasing the skills and knowledge of farm advisors.  To learn more contact Liz Robertson, CAFA’s Executive Director at info@cafanet.com or 1-877-474-2871.
