Alberta will receive $508 million over five years through the new Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP).
The grants will support programs in Alberta’s agriculture and agri-food sector.
Alberta Agriculture and Irrigation Minister Nate Horner said the province’s programs will create new jobs and spur growth in the sector by supporting value-added processing, attracting new investment, and expanding irrigation capacity.
“The new Sustainable CAP provides flexibility to deliver programs that will help producers grow their business and improve productivity while addressing the unique challenges of farming in Alberta,” Horner said in a news release. “Alberta’s producers are among the best in the world when it comes to sustainable practices, and we will continue to support their efforts to feed the world while protecting the environment for generations to come.”Click here to see more...
