The Ontario government has
announced an increase in available funding for the Risk
Management Program (RMP), from $100 million to $150 million, starting with the 2020 program year. RMP helps farmers manage risks beyond their control, like fluctuating costs and market prices. The funding provides added support now for farmers facing financial challenges due to COVID-19.
Applications for the program will reopen to allow eligible farmers the opportunity to apply. The new application deadline is
July 30, 2020.
For farmers already enrolled in RMP
Farmers who already participate in RMP do not need to do anything further to benefit from the additional funding. Existing customers who have questions about their coverage should contact Agricorp.
For farmers not enrolled in RMP
