While farm groups are stressing the urgency of changes to business risk management programs, an important meeting in July that served as a soft deadline and a forum for possible action on the issue has been postponed.

The annual meeting of agriculture ministers from across Canada that was slated to be held at Guelph, Ont., in July has been pushed back to the fall due to COVID-19, announced the host Ontario government on Wednesday.

Ministers from the federal, provincial, and territorial governments, as well as deputy ministers and other senior government officials, will now meet October 14-16 in Guelph.
