The program supports value chains with access to technical, compliance and market expertise, and technologies needed to implement assurance requirements and processes that provide confidence in the health, biosecurity, traceability, surveillance and welfare related attributes of Alberta’s livestock, crop and bee products.

When developing the project, an eligible applicant under this program is encouraged to collaborate with all parties along the value chain that can contribute to meeting the market assurance requirements.

Eligible Expenses

The following activities may be included in an application under this program:

  • Purchase of, or modifications to, operational systems, technologies, processes and controls needed to comply with the market requirements related to providing assurance for plant, livestock and bee health, biosecurity, traceability or livestock welfare;
