Welcome

Welcome to the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies.  The OAAS is the provincial association representing over 200 Agricultural Societies from across the province.  Its mission is a resource for its Members, by providing leadership through  communication and education, and encouraging the promotion of a rural way of life in Ontario.

In Ontario Agricultural Societies are governed by the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act.  Their purpose is seen as being a community organization mandated with preserving and celebrating the rural way of life in Ontario.   As the provincial association, the OAAS primary focus is to assist its Members in achieving their own respective goals. 

The OAAS is governed by a Board consisting of a Provincial Director from each of the fifteen districts in the province.  These 15 Board Members, with four Executive Members provide leadership to the association.

With respect to staff resources, the OAAS is managed by Vince Brennan, Office Manager and Kathryn Lambert, Convention Administrator.

The highlight of the year for the OAAS is the annual convention, which takes place in mid-February.  The convention, which brings together upwards of 1000 delegates from all across the province, provides the OAAS Members with education, information, and networking opportunities that are meant to improve the operations of the individual Agricultural Societies.

The OAAS encourages visitors to this website to visit the many pages inside and learn about the organization, its Members and the great job that Agricultural Societies are doing in Celebrating Rural Ontario.
