New Risk Management Programs for Ontario farmers

Starting this fall, Ontario farmers will benefit from new stability and predictability that will help protect their farms and ensure Ontario families continue to enjoy healthy local food.

Farmers will be able to apply for support through the new Risk Management Program - a first of its kind in Ontario. The program, working like insurance, helps grains and oilseeds, cattle, hog, veal and sheep farmers manage risks beyond their control, such as fluctuating costs and volatile market prices.
