Agri-Québec

Description

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.
