Ontario Institute of Agrology
Since 1960, the Ontario Institute of Agrologists has been comprised of professionals working in agriculture. The Ontario Institute of Agrologists (OIA) serves under a provincial Act as a professional regulatory body in the province. A provincial Institute of Agrology exists in each Canadian province. Working to establish the highest standards for professional Agrologists, efforts are directed by licensed professionals to ensure that the public has complete trust in the health and safety of Ontarios agriculture, agri-food and agri-life science sectors. Farm business advisors, field sales agents, Ag finance service representatives and crop production experts that meet rigourous competency standards and abide by strict code of conduct and ethical practice requirements, as well as work within stewardship principles can achieve the Professional Agrologist (P.Ag.) or Technical Agrologist (T.Ag.) status. Licensed Agrologists are publically accountable and as such, a public complaint can be lodged with the OIA against a licensed Agrologist.
The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food is working in partnership with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to support a competitive, sustainable and innovative agri-food and agri-products sector. We are working with organizations like the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association and the Agricultural Adaptation Council to deliver the Canadian Agricultural Partnership to the industry.
