Ottawa, Ontario – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced today that the AgriRisk Initiatives Program will begin to accept new applications as of August 30, 2019.
The program, which was renewed under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, supports the development of new risk management tools for the agriculture sector. It will prioritize proposals involving new financial tools allowing agricultural producers to manage a defined business risk. In addition, for minor and emerging agricultural sectors, support will be available for the development of risk assessments and educational tools to help producers manage risk.
Eligible applicants will be able to apply for funding through the Research and Development stream of the program.Source : Government of Canada
