INVESTMENT AND MARKET DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 103

This program contributes to the growth of a viable agri-food system in Ontario by helping to ensure the competitiveness of Ontario food processors and distributors and to enhance the attraction and retention of investment in the sector. It also delivers programs to develop and expand domestic and international markets for Ontario-produced fresh and processed agricultural food products. In addition, the program provides services and programs for the agriculture and food sectors through agencies of the ministry that supervise the collective marketing of farm products and hear appeals of marketing and licensing decisions.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
