AgriStability Program


The maximum payment you can receive (including combined operations) is $3 million.


AgriStability is one of the business risk management programs under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership. It protects Canadian producers against large declines in farming income for reasons such as production loss, increased costs and market conditions.

AgriStability is a margin based program designed to help producers manage large income declines.

Each year, you must enrol in the program, pay your fee and submit a form by the applicable deadlines.

  • filed farming income (loss) for tax purposes for all reference years in which you farmed
  • complete a minimum of six consecutive months of farming activity and a production cycle, unless you experienced a disaster

Eligible Expenses
