butterflyAfter months of consultation, Ontario announced the launch of its comprehensive Pollinator Heath Action Plan in December, and states the plan “will help keep Ontario’s agri-food sector sustainable and productive as it supports a healthy environment by protecting pollinators.”

In November 2014, the government launched the first Pollinator Health strategy with targets of reducing overwinter mortality rates for managed honey bees to 15 per cent by 2010, and achieving an 80 percent reduction in the number of acres planted with neonicotinoid-treated corn and soybean seed by 2017.

In 2016, a third target was added of restoring, enhancing and protecting 1-million acreas of pollinator habitat in Ontario.
