Six Manitoba Projects Receive FCC AgriSpirit Funding

Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is giving $1.5 million through its FCC AgriSpirit Fund to 88 community groups across Canada to support rural capital projects.

“The FCC AgriSpirit Fund supports projects that make positive changes in rural communities,” said Sophie Perreault, FCC executive vice-president and chief operating officer. “Giving is not just about making a donation. It’s about making a difference. We hope all the community groups that received funding will thrive and continue their good work in their communities for many more years to come.”

This year, the FCC AgriSpirit Fund awarded between $5,000 and $25,000 for various community improvement initiatives that enrich the lives of residents in cities, towns or Indigenous communities with fewer than 150,000 people.

Over the past 18 years, the FCC AgriSpirit Fund has supported 1,444 projects, an investment of $18 million.

The next application period opens March 1, 2022.

In Manitoba, the following projects are receiving funding:

This is for two reason one because the crop is not quite ready yet but two and more importantly, with the lack of feed we think it’s the least we can do to drop as much salvageable straw for our neighbouring cattle producers as we can. It is easier to bale behind a conventional than a rotary combine and I explain why in this video.
