Program updates

Premiums held at 2021 levels

To support farmers, the Government of Ontario is keeping 2022 premium rates consistent with 2021 premiums this year.

​Funding partners

RMP is provincially funded only, meaning the Ontario government funds its traditional 40% share. Producers pay part of the premium cost and none of the administration cost. Administrative costs are fully funded by the provincial government. The 40% funding is reflected in the payment calculation and premium rates.​​
