Intake Announced for CAP Funding for Horticultural Growers

Take advantage of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership five-year federal-provincial-territorial initiative. A new intake will take place between March 22, 2019 and May 6, 2019. All cost-share funding assistance is merit-based, and project funding amounts are individually established based on the new and updated project categories. Cost-share funding will support targeted projects in three priority areas, with research and innovation continuing to be important across all programming:

  • Economic Development in the agri-food and agri-products sectors
  • Environmental Stewardship to enhance water quality and soil health
  • Protection and Assurance to reinforce the foundation for public trust in the sector through improved assurance systems in food safety and plant and animal health

Vegetable crop growers may be interested in funding for Technology Solutions – Productivity. This includes any equipment or machinery that would increase productivity for growers of horticultural crops. Cost share starts at 35% but if the project demonstrates multiple project category priorities it may be considered for up to a 75% cost share. The specific project details can be found here:
