Industry & Economics

Understanding the impact of the equine industry on Ontario’s gross domestic product is essential for demonstrating the significance of this agricultural industry to government as well as to the public. Through investigating aspects of employment, training  and education to areas where no dollar amount can be applied such as the human-horse bond and equine assisted learning and therapies, our researchers continue to demonstrate the value of the equine industry to Ontario.
