Business Risk Management (BRM) and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Programs

Designed to help farmers move beyond crisis management to long-term profitability and competitiveness.

To apply for a Business Risk Management program please contact the designated office listed under each program description.


AgriInvest

AgriInvest is a self-managed producer-government savings account that allows producers to set money aside which can then be used to help manage small income shortfalls or to make iinvestments to reduce on-farm risks. Producers will continue to have the flexibility to withdraw funds at any time throughout the year. Your AgriInvest account builds as you make annual deposits based on a percentage of your Allowable Net Sales (ANS) and receive matching contributions from federal, provincial and territorial governments. Producers can deposit up to 1.0 per cent of their Allowable Net Sales (ANS) each year into an AgriInvest account and receive a matching government contribution.

AgriStability

AgriStability is a margin-based program which allows producers to protect their farm operations against large declines in farm income. A program payment is triggered when a producer's margin (allowable revenue less allowable expenses) in the program year drops below their average margin from previous years (historical reference margin). Governments will continue to provide a share of the lost income.

AgriRecovery

The purpose of this disaster relief program is to help affected producers resume business operations and/or take actions to mitigate the impacts of a disaster as quickly as possible.

AgriRecovery is a framework that provides a process for the government to quickly determine whether further assistance beyond existing programming already in place (e.g., AgriInvest, AgriStability, or targeted sector payments) is warranted and, if so, what form that assistance should take.

Where the government agrees that assistance is warranted, the form of assistance will be unique to the specific disaster situation.
