The Grape Growers of Ontario’s board of directors is suggesting a change in district boundaries and board representation, which would come into effect in 2019.

Under the two-part proposal, the association would combine Districts 2, 3 and 4 into one district and use a weighting of 50 per cent grower numbers and 50 per cent tonnage to determine the growers’ committee and board of directors representation. Thus, the new district would have eight members on the Growers’ Committee and three members on the Board of Directors.

The board is also suggesting shifting Bruce, Grey, Huron, Perth and Waterloo counties into District 6 [from District 5] and moving Dufferin, Peel and Halton counties into the new combined district. The geographical changes would have no impact on the formula for district representation.

Meetings have been scheduled to discuss the proposal.
