AgriCorp is an Ontario government agency created in 1997 with the mandate of delivering crop insurance and other agricultural business risk management (BRM) programs. AgriCorp currently delivers three core programs, AgriStability, Production Insurance (PI) and the suite of Risk Management Programs (RMP), as well as several other smaller programs (e.g., Farm Business Registration). Agricorp is governed by a Board of Directors (board), including a Chair and Vice-Chair, appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council through an Order-in-Council on the recommendation of the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and reports directly to the Minister.
The Lieutenant Governor in Council appoints not fewer than five members and designates one of the members as chair and one or more as vice-chair(s).
Candidates have experience in strategic governance and awareness of the operating context, including agriculture risk and financial considerations. Experience/expertise in agriculture, insurance and agri-business is an asset.
Members are appointed for a term of up to 3 years and are eligible for reappointment.
- The Board of Directors meets at least six times annually.
