AgriInvest program

Stabilize your income with a preferred partner

As a Canadian agricultural producer, you play a key role in strengthening our economy, yet you have no doubt experienced slight revenue shortfalls that you could not make up, as they were directly related to market fluctuations.

For this very reason, the Canadian government, along with the provincial and territorial governments, have set up the AgriInvest program, which reduces or eliminates altogether such shortfalls by offsetting them up to a maximum of 15% of your annual income. In other words, this program provides additional protection intended exclusively for agricultural producers.

Signing up is easy!

Just follow these three steps:

  1. Complete the registration form  and submit it to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC), which runs the program.
  2. After the AAFC has analyzed your request, you will receive a contribution notice that indicates the maximum amount permitted for a given year.
  3. Show this notice to one of our specialists and open an account specifically for the AgriInvest program so you can start benefiting from compensation payments from the government.*
