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.
The Ag Action Manitoba Program for Farmers
The Ag Action Manitoba Program for Farmers supports the growth and sustainability of primary agriculture in Manitoba.
