Canadian Agricultural Partnership: Building a Strong Agriculture and Agri-Food Sector
“The Canadian Agricultural Partnership reinforces the Government of Canada’s strong agenda for agriculture. These initiatives will focus on priorities such as growing trade and expanding markets, innovation and sustainable growth of the sector, and supporting diversity and a dynamic, evolving sector. These investments will help ensure Canada’s agricultural sector remains a leader in job creation and innovation, and will help achieve our objective of expanding agricultural exports to $75 billion by 2025.”
- Lawrence MacAulay, Minister, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
The Canadian Agricultural Partnership is a $3-billion, five-year investment by federal, provincial and territorial governments to strengthen and grow Canada’s agricultural sector. It includes $2 billion in federal, provincial and territorial cost-shared strategic initiatives, and $1 billion for federal activities and programs.
