MLT Partner Bob Kasian is presenting at the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors (CAFA) Event on October 21st. Bob will be talking about the restrictions on foreign ownership and financing of farmland. Recent amendments to the farm security act have made it more difficult for foreign investors to own land and for farmers to access foreign financing. Bob will share his legal view of the implications of the changes to the act.
