Late participation for Nova Scotia producers

If your farm has experienced financial challenges because of the impacts of the floods and fires in 2023, AgriStability can help. Although the enrolment deadlines have passed, you can participate for the 2023 program year as a late participant.

AgriStability is one of the Business Risk Management programs under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP).

AgriStability protects Canadian producers against large declines in farming income for reasons such as production loss, increased costs and market conditions.

AgriStability is a margin based program designed to help producers manage large income declines.

Each year, you must enrol in the program, pay your fee and submit a form by the applicable deadlines.

Starting with the 2023 program year, the compensation rate under AgriStability will increase from 70% to 80%. You may receive a payment if your production margin in the current year falls below your historical reference margin by more than 30%. AgriStability covers 80% of the loss for every dollar below the threshold.

Use the AgriStability Benefit Estimator to help you understand how the program works and to calculate an estimated benefit.
