Yukon Agriculture celebrates one year of the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership

Whitehorse, Yukon – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

The Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP) provides $9.25 million in support towards Yukon’s agriculture and agri-food sector development over 5 years (2023-2028). Sustainable CAP focuses on five key areas:

  • Building sector capacity, growth and competitiveness.
  • Climate change and environment.
  • Science, research and innovation.
  • Market development and trade.
  • Resiliency and public trust. 

The Sustainable CAP is an investment in the Yukon’s agriculture industry to support farmers and increase capacity for local food production. Since its April 2023 launch, the program has approved over $1.4 million in funding for over 60 local projects. The program supports a broad range of initiatives, including development of farm business plans, research projects, development of farm infrastructure and purchase of equipment, farmers markets, farm internships and training, and on-farm practices to adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change. 

Applications for the 2024-25 year are currently being accepted on a monthly intake.
