  Financing of the premium

The premium is usually cost-shared by the Canadian and Québec governments (60%) and participants (40%), although these proportions may vary according to the crops and benefit options chosen.

  Choose your benefit option: 60%, 65%, 70%, 75%, 80% and more 

The benefit option corresponds to the coverage level you wish to be insured for. The choice of options varies according to the crop.

If your benefit option is 75%, your deductible will be 25%. Any loss would therefore need to be higher than 25% before you would be entitled to compensation.

Your benefit option is 75% and your loss totals 40%. The loss for which you would be compensated is calculated as follows:

Gross losserte brute − Deductible = Net loss compensated
40% − 25% = 15%
