Stabilization Insurance

Compensation

ASRA is designed to guarantee a positive net annual income to farm businesses in Québec. Compensation is paid when a product’s average selling price is lower than the stabilized income.

You can get an idea of the average selling price and the stabilized income by consulting the Summary Tables for Each Production (French).

Payment schedule

The dates and percentages for compensation advances are provided on an indicative basis.
The net compensation equals the total compensation owed minus the contribution taken from the compensation.
