Farmers and Ranchers across the country now have full access to the new five year Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

The agreement includes $1 billion in federal programs and activities, and $2.5 billion in cost-shared programs and activities funded by federal, provincial and territorial governments, an increase of 25 percent from the old CAP 

Producers should check their provincial agriculture websites to get information on regional specific programs that fall under the AgriAssurance, AgriCompetitiveness, AgriDiversity, AgriInnovate, AgriMarketing and AgriScience
program categories.

The new Sustainable CAP also includes a new $250 million Resilient Agricultural Landscape Program to support ecological goods and services offered by the agricultural sector.

As well, producers also have access to an enhanced suite of business risk management programs to help them manage risks including an increase of the reference margins from 70 pe cent to 80 per cent in AgriStability.
