Ontario’s Agricorp streamlines web delivery

Posted

Ontario’s farm program delivery agency will begin inviting farmers by email next month to register for its newly-consolidated online services.

Agricorp announced Tuesday that farmers may now sign in at the agency’s main website to view program documents, download all program forms and update contact information, “all in one place” — and thus will only need one user name and password for all program activities online.

The Guelph-based agency’s home page will also now connect Ontario farmers to AgriStability services previously available only through a separate site, MyAgricorp.com, which is now closed.

“Moving to a single sign-in is an important step towards offering customers more online services in the future,” the agency said.

Registration details will be sent via email in January to customers and their “authorized contacts” who have email addresses on file with Agricorp, the agency said.

Before they can use the new online services, farmer customers will need to update their authorizations to ensure that only “authorized people” — such as accountants, or certain family members, working on a farmer’s behalf — have access to the customer’s information, Agricorp said.

Farmers not yet registered can call Agricorp at 1-888-247-4999 to validate their email addresses, then watch for email invitations to “Get connected to Agricorp” — or they can also visit Agricorp.com, click on “Sign in” at top right, and then go to “Register now.” — AGCanada.com Network
