Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations
Completing 2020 Annual Return
The deadline to submit your Annual Return is December 6, 2021.
Completing the Annual Return
Societies are now able to submit a completed Annual Return using a new and improved submission process through TPON (Transfer Payment Ontario). Please ensure your society is registered on TPON.
Societies will receive an email outlining the new and improved submission process with a detailed guide.
Annual General Meetings
Societies are required to hold an annual general meeting. Please ensure supporting documents are ready to submit with your return - Financial statements, Review Certificate (signed prior to AGM) and a list of incoming Executives and Directors.
If your society cannot hold their annual meeting within the 15 months of their last meeting due to unusual and extenuating circumstances, societies can send an email to the OMAFRA Director at AHOA.firstname.lastname@example.org to request an extension with a proposed new date (month/year) and provide reason for the AGM delay. The ministry will approve extensions and notify societies via email. Click here to view the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act.
