AgriAssurance Program: National Industry Association (NIA) Component will fund projects, at the national level, to help industry develop and adopt systems, standards and tools to support health and safety claims about Canadian agricultural and agri-food products.
It will accomplish these goals by supporting industry to develop, verify and integrate assurance systems to address market and regulatory requirements. Assurance systems enable the industry to make credible, meaningful and verifiable claims about its products and the manner in which they are produced.
If approved, support is available in the form of non-repayable contributions support from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).
