New Entrant Quota Assistance Program

Dairy Farmers of Ontario’s (DFO) New Entrant Quota Assistance Program is designed to assist those with an interest in dairy farming who may not otherwise have the financial means or opportunity to get started in the industry. The P5 makes available 160 kilograms of quota per year for the program in Ontario. Subject to DFO issuing a licence to produce and market milk and approving an order to issue quota, DFO will match 20 kilograms of quota to each successful applicant. DFO has given priority access to 2 new entrants who plan on shipping organic milk. As a result, there are only 6 positions available. Click here for the application. The deadline to submit the 2022 application is October 31, 2021. If you have further questions, please contact the Field Services Representative in your area of the province.”
