AgriStability options for poultry farmers

The governments of Canada and Alberta have agreed to allow Alberta's poultry producers to participate in the 2022 AgriStability program year, through late participation. Any producers not currently signed up for AgriStability will have an opportunity to sign up immediately. 

Statement from Minister Horner on AgriStability options for poultry farmers
Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation Nate Horner issued the following statement on business risk management options for poultry farmers impacted by avian influenza:

“In response to the avian influenza outbreak in 2022, Canada and Alberta have agreed to allow late participation in AgriStability for the 2022 program year. This means any poultry producers not currently signed up for AgriStability can reach out to Agriculture Financial Services Corporation to enrol by Feb. 28.

“Alberta’s producers have faced significant impacts, substantial losses and a great deal of stress during this time, and I hope this change offers additional help to some producers. I commend Alberta’s poultry sector for its advocacy and information sharing over the past year to support producers during the avian influenza outbreak.
