The objective of the CASPP is to provide funds for projects that address national or sector-wide priorities that help industry address emerging issues and capitalize on opportunities.

In order to be eligible for funding, applicants must clearly demonstrate the issue that is facing the Canadian agriculture, agri-food and agri-products sector, how the project results will benefit the sector, and how the project aligns with one or more of the four priority areas identified:

  • emerging issues

More detailed information on these priority areas can be found in the Applicant Guide.

If approved, support is available in the form of non-repayable contributions.
