The AgriInvest program allows participants to annually deposit an amount into an account of up to 1.0% of their operation's adjusted net sales (ANS) of allowable products and to receive a matching government contribution. However, it is possible for participants to annually deposit an amount into their account that does not exceed the ANS of their operation. Participants can withdraw money from their account, according to their operation's needs.
Participation in the AgriInvest program is independent from that of the AgriStability program.
Statistics on the AgriInvest program are available in the Statistics and Rates section.
Amendments to the AgriInvest program
À compter de l'année de participation 2013
As administrator of the federal-provincial-territorial AgriInvest program applied in Québec, La Financière agricole would like to inform you of the amendments it is required to implement starting in the year 2013.
This program, funded by the Québec government, was designed to ease the operation’s financial risks and allow it to invest in improving its efficiency. All farming and aquafarming operations will be able to benefit from this protection that covers almost all products, with the exception of supply-managed products.
This program, complementary to the AgriInvest program, allows participants to annually deposit an amount in a savings account, to receive a matching amount from La Financière agricole du Québec and to withdraw amounts based on their needs.
The maximum amount participants can deposit into their account per year is 3.0% of their allowable net sales (ANS) for eligible agricultural products and 3.6% of their ANS for aquacultural products. The maximum amount of ANS per participating operation is $1.5 million.
