Production Insurance
Carrots, yield basis

Overview

​​​

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

In a word: protection.

Production Insurance protects Ontario producers from yield reductions and production losses caused by factors beyond their control, including adverse weather, disease, pests, wildlife or other uncontrollable natural perils. 

When you enrol in Production Insurance for fresh market vegetables – average farm yield basis, you are guaranteed a level of production. Your coverage is based on comparing your actual yields to an average of your historical yields for each crop. A claim may be paid if an insured peril causes your yield to fall below your guaranteed production.

What Productio​​​n Insurance offers

  • Peace of mind (production level is guaranteed)
  • Dependable collateral with financial institutions​
  • Affordable coverage that is cost-shared with government
  • Premiums that are tax deductible as an operating expense
  • Claim payments that reflect market prices
  • Coverage that accommodates the unique aspects of each insurable crop
  • Payments that are made within the year the loss occurred (in most cases)

Funding partners

Production Insurance is part of the suite of programs available under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership. For most coverage, producers pay 40% of the total premium cost and none of the administration cost. Together, the federal and provincial governments contribute the other 60%. Administrative costs are fully funded by both levels of government.
