The 2021 enrolment period for the
Risk Management Program (RMP) is now open, and existing customers will receive their renewal packages shortly. Agricorp thanks customers for their patience this year.
To give farmers more time and flexibility to make decisions and assess their coverage needs, the 2021 enrolment and livestock reporting deadlines have been extended. Customers can save time by enrolling and reporting sales online.
Enrol, renew and report sales online
Customers will receive the necessary paperwork in the mail, but they are encouraged to use online options on agricorp.com.
The revised dates will not cause gaps in coverage, ensuring farmers continue to have RMP coverage in place.
Improved coverage for 2021
To further support farmers after
increasing RMP funding to $150 million, the Ontario government is keeping 2021 premiums rates the same as 2020 premium rates. Rates will be provided in customers’ renewal packages and are available on the Rates page for each commodity on agricorp.com.
In addition, as of 2021,
lambs retained for future breeding purposes will now be covered by RMP, offering sheep farmers more coverage and greater flexibility.
If RMP customers have any questions after receiving their renewal packages, please contact Agricorp.
In addition, starting with the 2021 program year, Agricorp will be implementing a new fund to hold both government and producer premiums for RMP. Government and producer funds will be used exclusively to pay RMP claims.
