As part of the Government of Canada’s strengthened climate plan, A Healthy Environment and a Healthy Economy, the new Agricultural Clean Technology (ACT) Program aims to create an enabling environment for the development and adoption of clean technology that will help drive the changes required to achieve a low-carbon economy and promote sustainable growth in Canada’s agriculture and agri-food sector.
The Adoption Stream will support the purchase and installation of commercially available clean technologies and processes with a priority given to those that show evidence of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and other environmental co-benefits.
Eligible activities under the Adoption Stream are of the following nature and type:
Green energy and energy efficiency
Note: funding will be specifically allocated towards projects under the priority of green energy and energy efficiency, involving the purchase of more efficient grain dryers and fuel switching initiatives.
Support is available in the form of non-repayable contributions from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
