Promoting Canadian Oats

Are you a farmer looking to diversify marketing of your primary agricultural products?

The Canadian Agricultural Partnership’s Ag Action Manitoba Program for Farmers offers financial assistance focused on distribution and marketing alliances that can help farmers work together to access new markets and selling opportunities.  

The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a $3-billion, five-year multilateral agreement that went into effect on April 1, 2018. Under this agreement, the governments of Canada and Manitoba are contributing $176 million over five years to fund a cost-shared, made-in-Manitoba program called Ag Action Manitoba.
