Provincial Premises Registry Initiative

Premises ID


Welcome to the home of the Provincial Premises Registry (PPR) Initiative, the only official provincial registry that provides a Premises Identification Numbers for Ontario agri-food businesses.

The Provincial Premises Registry (PPR) is used to register parcels of land in Ontario associated with agri-food activities. Agricultural business owners and operators can register their premises securely, easily, and for free. In doing so, agriculture and food businesses will improve traceability systems and emergency response management within Ontario. Premises identification is an important part of modern and effective approaches to animal health, plant health, food safety, related public health and forces of nature.

The PPR is an Initiative of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA)  and is funded under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Initiative operates under the Protection and Risk Resilience: One Health, Food Safety and Animal Health Designated Program set out in Part V.15 under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership Strategic Initiatives Program (Minister’s Order 0005/2023).
