Function

The Business Risk Management (BRM) programs, delivered by Ontario's program administrator, were established to provide producers with effective tools to manage business risks. A program participant may submit a review request in the case of disagreement with how BRM program rules were applied to the participant's application by the program administrator. The Business Risk Management Review Committee (BRMRC) is responsible for hearing review requests of program administrator decisions in relation to program applications and making non-binding recommendations to the delivery agent. The BRMRC has the authority to consider requests for reviews under: (a) AgriStability; (b) Ontario's Risk Management Program; (c) Ontario's Self-Directed Risk Management Program; (d) Ontario Wildlife Damage Compensation Program (e) any other BRM program that the Lieutenant Governor in Council or the Minister assigns responsibility to the BRMRC for considering requests for reviews of a program administrator's decision.

The BRMRC consists of a minimum of three (3) members appointed by the Minister. The chair and vice-chair(s) are selected by the Minister.

Term

Members are appointed for an initial term of 3 years and are eligible for reappointment for another term of up to 3 years at the Minister's discretion.

Meetings
