Feds re-affirm commitment to support dairy, poultry, and egg producers

The federal government is reaffirming its commitment to help dairy, poultry, and egg producers and processors financially.

Marie-Claude Bibeau, the minister of agriculture and agri-food, announced on Monday they will provide up to $1.7 billion in compensation for these supply-managed sectors. They made this commitment due to the impacts the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) has had.

“Promise made, promise kept,” she said. “We made a commitment to fully and fairly compensate the market losses suffered by dairy, poultry and egg producers and processors, and that is what we have done.”

Up to $1.2 billion is being allocated to the Dairy Direct Payment Program, while around $300 million will be used to create a new program that will support innovation and investment into large-scale projects to add value to solids-non-fat, a by-product of milk processing.
