Deadlines: Canadian Agricultural Partnership

April 27, 2018  By Greenhouse Canada

Applications for the Canadian Agricultural Partnership officially opened on April 1st, but calls for the first round of applications will end soon in some provinces.

Programs offered through the partnership are made available to agricultural producers and processors as a way to grow the sector over the next five years. Eligible projects will encourage the adoption of agricultural innovation, encourage economic growth, improve food traceability, ensure environmental stewardship and more.

Delivered by provinces and territories


$2 billion was committed by the federal government towards cost-share programs delivered by individual provinces and territories, splitting costs 60:40.

Eligible project costs covered will depend on the province and specific programs offered; some can be as high as 50% or $100,000 of the project costs.

Note that deadlines, programs and eligibility requirements will differ by province/territory, and not all programs will accept applications in each round. Interested agricultural businesses should check which ones they’re eligible for.

Earliest applications are due May 1st for eligible projects under the ‘Environmental Stewardship and Climate Change (Group)’ program. Details here

Applications for the first round are due May 8th at precisely 5pm EST. A wide number of programs are accepting applications, including plant pest monitoring and tools, nutrient recovery from wastewater, traceability equipment, technology to improve labour productivity, marketing domestically or internationally, new product development and more. This is administered by the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association. Details here
