AgriRecovery Funding

OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka Member of Parliament for Yellowhead wishes to advise that Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has announced $100 million in AgriRecovery funding to further support farmers facing continued extreme weather due to the drought and wildfires. This funding is designed to match all provincial AgriRecovery submissions on the 60-40 cost-shared basis outlined under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Once assessments are completed, work will be expedited to finalize an agreement with each province.
