 The Farm Implement Act and Farm Implement Dealerships Act were created to help protect the investment farmers make in their machinery. This legislation establishes minimum warranty requirements, outlines the required availability for repair pairs, and creates a process for resolving disputes over agreements and implement performance.
Administered by the Farmers' Advocate Office (FAO), this legislation is delivered by the Farm Implement Board. Farmers are encouraged to make every effort to settle their dispute with the dealer, and all disputes are reviewed by the FAO's Farm Implement Inspector prior to being forwarded to the Farm Implement Board.

The Farm Implement Board manages the Farm Implement Compensation Fund, which is financed through the dues and levies paid by licensed dealers and distributors. The FAO manages the licensing of dealers and distributors. Through the Farm Implement Compensation Fund, compensation is available for situations where a breach of a lease or sale agreement has occurred.
