Thank you to the thousands who did their FBR online

April 13, 2021

Agricorp would like to thank producers who have registered their farm businesses online. Agricorp worked with the accredited farm organizations and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to create an online registration process that would make it easier for farmers to register their farm businesses, and so far, over 7,000 producers successfully registered online!

Still time to try the new FBR online service

Thinking of doing business online? Farm Business Registration (FBR) is a good place to start. FBR online registration is compatible with mobile devices and most rural internet speeds.

  1. Step 1: To complete the registration, producers can go to with their FBR number and credit card.
  2. Step 2: There is no step two!

More time and extra flexibility

The Government of Ontario is making FBR more flexible this year in response to current uncertainties producers are facing. Producers now have until April 15 to register their farm businesses for 2021.

If a returning registrant's farm income in 2020 was negatively impacted by COVID-19, their gross farm income can be based on their 2019 tax return instead. Producers who are in this situation can simply make their FBR payment online, or as indicated on their invoice.  Farm businesses will continue to be eligible for the FBR program, and producers will maintain access to agricultural programs, including the Farm Property Class Tax Rate Program.
