AgriRisk Initiatives Microgrants – Grant Funding is now closed.
The AgriRisk Initiatives (ARI) is a five-year program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership that supports the development of new risk management tools. It is divided into three program components:

- ARI Microgrants – grant funding
- ARI Administrative Capacity Building (ACB) stream
ARI Microgrants – Grant Funding
Microgrants are available for academic research proposals that explore the development or improvement of alternative risk management tools and/or practices. The research needs to be relevant to the Canadian agriculture sector and be transferable beyond the applicant, resulting in a public good or benefit.
Note: Research activities related to existing government risk management programs in the Canadian market are ineligible under this program. Projects that seek to modify and/or adapt an existing product in another jurisdiction for use in the Canadian market are eligible.
