Production Insurance and AgriStability are complementary programs that add​​ress different risks faced by Ontario producers.

While Production Insurance protects Ontario producers from yield reductions and crop losses caused by factors beyond their control, AgriStability protects whole​​ farms against large margin declines caused by any combination of production losses, adverse market conditions, or increased costs.

When you participate in both AgriStability and Production Insurance, you maximize​​ the benefits of the government risk management programs available to you. For example:

  • Production Insurance claim payments count as income in calculating your AgriStability reference margin.

  • Depending on weather and/or market conditions, in a given year you could receive an AgriStability payment, a Production Insurance claim – or both.


AgriInvest is a savings account with matching government contributions. You can withdraw th​​e funds at any time for risk mitigation or investments. In Ontario, AgriInvest is delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).

Your Production Insurance claims are included when AAFC calculates your allowable net sales (ANS), which is used to determine your maximum matc​​hable deposit under AgriInvest. This protects your ANS in the years that you have a Production Insurance claim.
