Production Insurance
Bee Health

Overview

​​​​​​​​Why are 5 million acres of Ontario farmland insured under Production Insurance each year?

In a word: protec​tion.

Production Insurance ​​protects Ontario producers from losses caused by factors beyond their control. The bee health plan cover​s​ colony losses caused by insured perils that occur during the overwinter period. 

What's new

  • Same insurance. New look – We have refreshed the renewal notice and Contract of Insurance for Production Insurance. 

Coverage for production loss caused by on-farm labour shortages due to COVID-19

On July 9, 2020, the governments of Canada and Ontario announced an enhancement to Production Insurance for eligible commodities in 2020 to help farmers manage challenges beyond their control.

This coverage has been extended for the 2021 program year. Coverage in 2021 will be extended to bee health, apple and tender fruit trees, and grapevines.

Production Insurance customers who suffer production loss caused by on-farm labour shortages due to COVID-19 will be insured for the 2020 and 2021 program years.

For more information about this coverage, see Understanding Coverage for 2021 Labour Disruptions.

Fund​​ing partners

Production Insurance is part of the suite of programs available under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Administrative costs are fully funded by both levels of government.​
