Ontario Pork’s governance structure is based on delegate representation from pork producing zones within ontario. In each of these zones, delegates are responsible for electing board members to serve on the Ontario Pork Board of Directors.

Ontario Pork’s members complement this work through direct grassroots input into policy development participating in advisory groups, resolution process and policy day conferences. After two years of member consultations on how to better represent producers’ interests, and receiving government’s approval, Ontario Regulation 403/10 came into force on September 29, 2023.

Main changes include:

  • Holding elections for delegate and Board positions within the zone election process
  • Changing the zone structure from four to five zones and realigning the number of Board members per zone based on the size of the pork industry in each region.
  • Opening vacant delegate positions to all producers in the zone and vacant Board positions to all delegates in the province
  • Including three at-large Board positions in the Board composition
