The Program

AgriInvest

The AgriInvest program allows participants to annually deposit an amount into an account of up to 1.0% of their operation's allowable 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.

Amendments to the AgriInvest program
Starting in the 2013 participation year

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.

Statistics on the AgriInvest program are available in the Statistics and Rates section.

Agri-Québec

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.

Amendments to the Agri-Québec program
Starting in the 2013 participation year

If the ANS considered by the program are over $1.5 M, the maximum eligible matching deposit will be increased but only for the portion of ANS not associated with products covered by ASRA or supply management. This increase represents:

  • 2% for ANS of $1.5 M to $2.5 M;
  • 1.5% for ANS of $2.5 M to $5 M;
  • 1% for ANS over $5 M.
