The AgriStability enrollment deadline for the 2020 program year has been extended without penalty from April 30th to July 3, 2020.

This extension will allow farmers more time to sign up and benefit from the program.

Agreed to by federal, provincial, and territorial governments, this step will enable the program to help more farmers manage the impact of current market disruptions, increased expenses, and production challenges facing many farm operations.
