This individual program is based on savings just like the AgriInvest program. You can make an annual deposit into an account and, in turn, receive matching government contributions. Amounts deposited into the Agri-Québec account thereby become a reserve allowing you to better manage the risks facing your operation.

Additional support during your transition toward organic agriculture

Since 2017, if your operation is in transition toward organic production, you can benefit from additional support from the Agri-Québec program.

This contribution almost doubles the current government intervention for a maximum duration of three years. It is granted to pre-certified production, when the income of pre-certified products represents at least 50% of the operation’s eligible income.

Operations that initiated pre-certification procedures as of 2015 are automatically eligible for this increase due to an information-sharing agreement with the Conseil des appellations réservées et des termes valorisants (reserved designations and enhancement terms board, or CARTV).
