July 21, 2017 – Canada’s AgGrowth Coalition extends its appreciation to federal, provincial and territorial Agricultural Ministers across the country for recognizing and supporting the need for a review of business risk management programs for farmers.
It was announced on July 20th, following this week’s Federal-Provincial-Territorial meetings, that a review of the existing business risk programs will be conducted. The Coalition is hopeful that industry will be actively involved in a process, that is both comprehensive and timely, to ensure risk management programs are effective for Canadian farmers.
