The Ontario Pork Industry Council (OPIC) will receive an investment of $175,000 to improve and address any potential gaps in the Ontario pork industry’s emergency response system.

Working with Ontario Pork and the sector, OPIC will develop the disease emergency response plan for the Ontario pork industry. Project activities include clarifying roles and responsibilities, developing communications networks, and assessing the role of traceability in emergency preparedness. The plan will help coordinate and complement existing federal and provincial government programs and improve industry communications across the country.

In 2009, Ontario’s pork industry contributed $4 billion and 27,000 jobs from farm to fork in the Canadian economy.

Funding for this project is being provided by the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP). In Ontario, CAAP is delivered by the Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC).

CAAP is a five-year (2009-2014), $163-million national initiative that aims to help the Canadian agricultural sector adapt and remain competitive. Eligible CAAP projects could be in areas of traceability, environment, climate change, capacity development, pests and diseases, and more.
