The Traceability Foundations Initiative (TFI) Intake 2 will be accepting applications beginning June 1, 2012 until July 24, 2012.

TFI is a three-year joint Federal/Provincial funding program that provides up to 75 per cent cost share funding to sector organizations and value chains to support voluntary, industry-led information sharing networks that will enhance agri-food traceability.  Traceability is an important component of food safety programs. Approved projects may be eligible for up to a maximum of $5 million in funding per project.

Visit the OMAFRA website at www.ontario.ca/traceability and click on “funding” to access the new eligibility assessment tool, application, guidebook, and other helpful resources as well as to register for an upcoming education session.

If you would like additional guidance in completing an application, please contact the Agricultural Information Contact Centre at tfi.omafra@ontario.ca or by calling 1-877-424-1300.
