The AgriInvest program helps producers protect their margin from small declines or provide funds for investment to reduce risks or improve profitability. Each year, producers can make a deposit into an AgriInvest account, and receive a matching contribution from federal and provincial governments.
All agricultural producers can take part in the program if they have carried on the business of farming and reported farming income (loss) for income tax purposes and have met program requirements.
After completing an application, producers will receive a notice indicating how much they can deposit into their AgriInvest account. Producers may deposit up to the amount calculated, and receive a matching government contribution. The program is delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for New Brunswick producers.
