We hope you are healthy and keeping in good spirits despite the persistence of the COVID-19 crisis.
Canadian Organic Growers want to thank those of you who contacted them directly with your concerns. It has shown that while you have unique farm businesses and are located all across the country, you have many common concerns during this crisis.
Your emails reinforced the need to protect Canadian farmers and local food more than ever. It’s clear that we need to build a collective response to this crisis by supporting each other, advocating for solutions together, and creating new initiatives that build resilience for ourselves, our businesses and our communities.
Canadian Organic Growers have created a survey to better document how you are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and what solutions you believe would be most valuable to you, your farm, and the communities you serve. The goal of this survey is to understand how COG can support you during this time. Also, as a national organization with key access to policy-makers, they want to be able to advocate effectively for you. This survey will give them that information.
