As the industry prepares to enter the third year of the Horse Racing Partnership Program it is important to measure the impact horse racing has on employment and the economy, particularly in rural Ontario.
The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has been tasked with quantifying these impacts and developing key performance indicators that will guide the development of the industry.
To assist in this effort, OMAFRA has hired Deloitte and is working with OHRIA to survey the industry and collect data that will help set performance measures and influence future funding support for our industry.
Your assistance in completing this survey is very important as it will help to ensure that the value of the horse racing industry to Ontario’s economy is accurately reflected and understood by Government.
The survey can be accessed via this link. Please take the 15-20 minutes required to complete the survey and help tell the great story of Ontario horse racing.
