 Creating and maintaining public trust are the goals of these three programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (the Partnership). Applications are now being accepted for:

Agriculture and Food Sustainability Assurance Initiatives

Assurance initiatives are in place so the public can learn more about industry practices and standards. They allow for farmers and food companies to demonstrate the quality, safety, and sustainability of their products. This program provides support to develop and enhance sustainability certification or assurance initiatives and to assist promoting the initiative to farmers and food processors.

This program is open to not-for-profit organizations, agricultural groups registered under the Societies Act, commodity groups, and industry-led non-profit assurance initiatives.

Public Agriculture Literacy

More people want know where their food comes from and how it is produced. This program supports initiatives to help build communication tools that will give Albertans information about agriculture and the food production system.

Eligible applicants include not-for-profit organizations, agricultural groups registered under the Societies Act, commodity groups, and recognized forms of rural municipal government in Alberta.

Youth Agriculture Education

This program stream supports the development and delivery of effective agriculture education programs that are science-based, topic-driven, and curricular-linked. It will help students think critically as they engage in meaningful and informed conversations about issues that affect public trust in agriculture.

This program is open to not-for-profit organizations, agricultural groups registered under the Societies Act, commodity groups, universities or colleges, school districts, and recognized forms of rural municipal government in Alberta.

The Partnership is a five-year, $3 billion federal-provincial-territorial investment in the agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector that began in April, 2018. It is the successor of Growing Forward 2 which concluded on March 31, 2018.

In Alberta, this partnership represents a federal - provincial investment of $406 million in strategic programs and initiatives for the agricultural sector.
