What's New

AgriStability is a national program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) agreement on agriculture policy. 

CAP is a five year federal-provincial-territorial funding agreement that governs business risk management (BRM) programs such as Crop Insurance, AgriStability, Western Livestock Price Insurance and AgriInvest.

Changes to BRM programs are effective for the 2018 Program Year. The major change to the AgriStability Program involves the Reference Margin Limit (RML). Producers are now guaranteed that the Reference Margin Limit used in their program calculations will never be less than 70 per cent of their conventional reference margin. This change will help producers with a low cost expense structure which would have resulted in a low reference margin.
