The government's of Canada and Ontario are helping transport hay from Western Canada to Ontario farmers in need.

Following record-low rainfall this summer in Eastern Canada, HayEast 2012, an industry-led initiative, was created by farm organisations across Canada to help send hay to farmers in Ontario and Quebec.

HayEast is modeled on the HayWest programme that saw thousands of Eastern Canadian farmers send hay to Western Canada in 2002.

The Governments of Canada and Ontario will continue to monitor the situation.

A strong agriculture industry is part of the governments' plans to create jobs and opportunities that will grow the economy.
