The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a five-year, $3 billion federal-provincial-territorial investment in the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector that began in April 2018. In Alberta, the Canadian Agricultural Partnership represents a federal - provincial investment of $406 million in strategic programs and initiatives for the agricultural sector.
Canadian Agricultural Partnership programs are changing in Alberta. These changes will remain in effect for the remainder of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, which expires on March 31, 2023.
Transformation at a provincial level is occurring to support economic recovery and growth, and to reduce red tape.
The agri-food sector holds great potential for investment and growth and can support Alberta’s economic recovery.
We are working hard to streamline programs, reduce red tape, and consolidate spending to support key priority areas, including economic growth.
The changes will:
· Strengthen the focus on investment and growth of the agriculture, agri-food and agri-processing industry in Alberta;
· Encourage innovation and technological advancement on-farm and in value-added facilities; and
· Maintain our pledge to grow public confidence in the agriculture industry.
The official changes will take effect in Spring 2021. Updated programs will be posted on this website under the Programs tab. Please stay tuned for more information.
