Ontario's first Agri-Food Trade Mission to India begins in November.

The delegation will be in India from November 13th until the 20th, with visits to New Delhi, Mumbai and other regions of the Country.

Representatives from Canadian trade organizations, commodity groups, food and beverage processors and the feed sector will join Agriculture Minister Jeff Leal and International Trade Minister Michael Chan.

Leal says building new relationships to help Ontario's agri-food businesses compete globally is part of the government's economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs.

Ontario's energy ministry is cancelling plans to sign contracts for 1,000 megawatts of power from solar, wind and other renewable energy sources to help reduce rates.

Energy Minister Glenn Thibeault says the decision will save the province an estimated $3.8-billion in costs from its 2013 long-term plan, and will keep about $2.45 a month from being added to hydro bills.

He's also reviewing ways to reduce costs in the province's next long-term energy plan, which is scheduled to be released in 2017.
