Ontario floriculture producers can now access the Advance Payment Program of the Farm Finance Division of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. fc_growers_logo_web
Flowers Canada (Ontario), on behalf of Flowers Canada Growers, worked in partnership with ACC Farmers Financial in Guelph, Ontario, – with valuable input on pricing from Ontario Flower Growers Co-op and United Flower Growers Co-op in British Columbia – to develop a proposal resulting in access to this valuable program. Ontario growers, members of FCO, are given first access to this program. Application forms are now available. This program will soon be available to greenhouse flower growers across Canada and will be delivered by ACC Financial.
This agreement confirms a commitment from the Federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to allow all farmers to access every farm support program. Tom Mulleder, president of Flowers Canada Growers, and Andrew Kuyvenhoven, president of FCO, thanked the Minister for honouring his commitment, “and all those who worked diligently to realize this program.”
