Government Invests in Canada’s First National Bioeconomy Strategy to Help Grow a Clean Economy

Ottawa, Ontario - Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada - Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced today an investment of up to $200,000 to Bioindustrial Innovation Canada under the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program. This funding was used to build the first national bioeconomy strategy to help meet the goal of reducing CO2 emissions, reduce greenhouse gases and attract additional markets in the biomass and bioproduct sector.
 
The project will allow Canadian farmers with opportunities to diversify their commodities into new markets and develop new uses for crops. This new strategy will also provide a great opportunity to work with other sectors, including forestry to help meet Canada’s agriculture growth plans for a greener economy.
