Business Risk Management Programs

Under the Sustainable CAP, business risk management programs will continue to help producers manage significant risks that threaten the viability of their farm and are beyond their capacity to manage.

  • AgriStability (PEI) 
    provides support when a producer experiences larger farm income losses. The program covers declines of more than 30% in a producer's average income from previous years.
  • AgriInsurance (PEI)
    a program which includes insurance against production losses for specified perils (weather, pests, disease) and is being expanded to include more commodities.
  • AgriInvest ​(Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada)
    a savings account for producers, which provides coverage for small income declines and allows for investments that help mitigate risks or improve market income.
  • AgriRecovery (Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada)
    is a disaster relief framework to help agricultural producers recover from natural disasters. Further information can be found on the AgriRecovery Guide.
2022 Canada-PEI Fiona Fruit Tree Recovery Initiative
