How to Join the NFU-O

I am a NEW FARMER and need a Farm Business Registration (FBR) number.

I HAVE a Farm Business Registration (FBR) number and want to switch to the NFU-O.

I do NOT need a Farm Business Registration (FBR) number and want to join the NFU-O directly.


If you do not currently have a Farm Business Registration (FBR) number and need one:

 

  1. You must show a minimum of $7,000 in gross farm income on the most recent tax return as filed with the Canada Revenue Agency.
  2. Agricorp issues FBR numbers for all of the accredited farming organizations. Contact them at 1-866-327-3678 and request the FBR form.
  3. Fill out the applicable information and submit the required paperwork.
  4. Check NFU-O on your form.
  5. Once you have paid your fee, please email, phone or mail the NFU-O office with the name on your FBR form, your FBR number, your phone number, and a note requesting that your FBR fee be applied to a membership.

If you have an FBR number and would like to switch to the NFU-O:

  1. Once you have received your FBR invoice from Agricorp, make your cheque payable to the National Farmers Union – Ontario (NFU-O).
  2. Do NOT use the envelope provided. Instead mail your cheque and invoice stub to:
    Agricorp – FBR
    1 Stone Road West
    Box 3660 Stn. Central
    Guelph, ON N1H 8M4
  3. You may also pay online or by telephone at 1-866-327-3678.
  4. Once you have paid your fee, please email, phone or mail the NFU-O office with the name on your FBR form, your FBR number, your phone number, and a note requesting that your FBR fee be applied to a membership.

If you join the NFU-O as a family farm membership and do NOT need a Farm Business Registration number:

 

  1. If you are a new member, click here to download a membership form. If you are a returning member, you will receive a renewal notice the month your membership is due.
  2. When you receive the notice, please send your payment ($220.35) to the NFU-O at 5420 Hwy 6N, RR 5, Guelph, ON N1H 6J2.
