Stabilization Insurance

To Enrol

When you enrol in ASRA, you commit to participating in the program for a period of five years for each of your productions covered.

To enrol

 Eligibility

Make certain you meet the eligibility criteria for each product you wish to insure.

 Contact Us

Contact an advisor at your service centre.

 Forms

Complete and send both forms to the service centre nearest you before the enrolment deadline, if there is one.

 Deadlines

  • For cereal, canola and apples, the enrolment deadline is April 30 every year.
  • For all the other productions, it is possible to enrol at any time. The date that marks the beginning of the enrolment period corresponds to the date that all documents required for registration are received.

 Costs

No amount is required at the time of enrolment for ASRA. The contribution will be paid from a compensation advance made by La Financière agricole.

If there is no compensation for the year in question, a contribution notice will be sent to you before the end of the insurance year concerned.

Ever year, participants must pay administrative costs for each insured product or product category, in accordance with the Règlement sur les frais exigibles par La Financière agricole du Québec.

Sharing the premium: The premium is set so as to ensure the insurance fund remains balanced. Two thirds of the premium is paid by La Financière agricole and one third by the producer, unless the business is very big, in which case it must pay a larger share.

Your responsibilities during the year

Proof of your live animal transactions is used to determine your insurable volume and your compensation.
